Google Art Project


Now that Google has conquered the view of city streets, they're moving their street view technology to art museums, including the Tate! Soon, we could have views available of Pre-Raphaelite artworks almost as if we were walking through the museum itself!

Sadly, the Tate doesn't seem to be on the list of available museums yet, but the above linked article says that it should eventually be.

I still eagerly await the day when I can visit England and the Pre-Raphaelite art itself, but in the mean time, this is a pretty brilliant thing.

ETA: Thanks to Hermes for pointing out his post on this topic from two days ago, while I was without internet! Whoops! And the Tate IS on the list.

Oh dear! Thank you Hermes! That's what I get for posting after a couple of days with no internet access! ;)
