Comtesse d'Haussonville by Ingres, Frick Collection, New York
The Google Art Project is a collaboration with some of the world’s art museums to enable people to view more than a thousand artworks online in amazing detail. Also included are provenance, audio commentary about the pieces and the ability to share the page. Not only that, but you can also walk the halls of the museums, à la Google Street View.
Some of the museums participating are: Alte Nationalgalerie - Staatliche Museen zu Berlin; Freer Gallery of Art, Smithsonian, Washington DC; The Frick Collection, NYC; Gemäldegalerie - Staatliche Museen zu Berlin; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC; MoMA, NYC; Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid; Museo Thyssen - Bornemisza, Madrid; Museum Kampa, Prague; National Gallery, London; Palace of Versailles; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; The State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg; State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow; Tate Britain, London; Uffizi Gallery, Florence; Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam.
