Google Art Project

The world’s art at your fingertips, visit

To discover and view artworks online in extraordinary detail. Working with 151 institutions, Google has put tens of thousands of works of art from more than 6000 artists online. This involved taking a selection of super high resolution images of famous artworks, as well as collating more than thirty thousand other images into one place. It also included building 360 degree tours of individual galleries using Street View ‘indoor’ technology. The project has expanded dramatically since it first launched. More than 30,000 objects are now available to view in high resolution, an increase from 1,000 in the first version.
