I'm pretty excited about this. Google Street View changed a lot of how we see the world, and now they've given us an opportunity to see artworks that we can't travel to. It's not the same as being in the physical museum, but this is as close as anyone can get when they're stuck at home. And, c'mon, the high resolution photographs are a great plus! You can see brush strokes! I was never able to get close enough to paintings to see that kind of detail before a security guard would told me to move back.
Technology and art, what a beautiful couple.
