Google Art Project in detail

Wouldn’t you know it, I have to revise my earlier post because I discovered that  there is a big difference in the quality of the images if you opt for “view the artwork” as oppose to “explore the museum.” In the former, the resolution is very high, taking you right into the detail — something you can’t do so easily in the museum itself without setting off alarm bells.  And, at least in the case of the Freer, you can get in much closer on GAP than you can in the museum’s site itself.  So one point for GAP’s “view the artworks.”  Still no points for its “explore the museum.”
