Google Art Project Digitizes 71 Kimbell Masterpieces

Hi-res scans reveal the master’s tricks!

The Kimbell Art Museum has become the second Texas institution to go online as part of the Google Art Project, a part of the company’s push for total free global information access. Kimbell Director Eric M. Lee is delighted: “We are thrilled to participate in Google’s Art Project; Google’s commitment to making art freely accessible to all audiences, both locally and internationally, is shared by the Kimbell Art Museum.” he said.

71 of the Kimbell’s 350 works were put online, including including new acquisitions like Michelangelo’s fantastic Torment of Saint Anthony, and Poussin’s Sacrament of Ordination, and some old favorites: Caravaggio’s Cardsharps, and Goya’s Portrait of the Matador Pedro Romero, but, alas, not Ensor’s darkly humorous Skeletons Warming Themselves.
