What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Virtual Thing of the Day: 4/25/20

6 Comments

Today, we’re taking a super close look at many of the world’s most beloved works of art, courtesy of Google Arts & Culture! You may not have realized it, but you can actually zoom way into the art, getting a much closer look at the works than you would if you were viewing them in a museum.

“Have you ever wondered what your favorite paintings look like up close? Zoom into millions of artworks to admire the brushstrokes and spot hidden details you’ve never seen before.”

You can check out the art on the Google Arts & Culture website.

  1. They are right.Would never had known just looking. by the way…what is the reflection in the hares eye?…a window?
    This little adventure we have been on with you during this virus thing has been entertaining and educational. Thank you. I has taken a lot of time and effort on your part…on ours too but it is fun for the most part.

  2. Sounds good. You can get a diff perspective of same pic at diff size. As I told an ex that my favourite painting was one I saw in a museum in Krakov, it is called Peasants Epoppee http://www.imnk.pl/gallerybox.php?dir=XX102&more=1&lang=EN . But no one sells prints of it, He got it printed on a smaller canvas than the original for me and that has diff feel to it because of size, Zoomed in feel.

    Pity the ex decide he did not want kids because it was a thoughtful present.

  3. Must say it is interesting but the real in me does that care that much. But there is a ton of art that I do do not care for, not just a few. Hal
