Google’s new Art Project launched yesterday, with 1000+ super-high resolution masterpieces from a scattering of global museums. Self described as "a unique collaboration with some of the world’s most acclaimed art museums to enable people to discover and view more than a thousand artworks online in extraordinary detail" you can now count the chips of flaked-off paint in Van Gogh’s Bedroom at Arles online! The next step is to place all original works in darkened vaults where they can be safe.
