Google Art Project enables you to view art more intensely than ever before and is 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." With just a click of your mouse, you can see brush strokes, colors, cracks, details formally unseen to the eye and "explore museums from around the world, discover and view hundreds of artworks at incredible zoom levels, and even create and share your own collection of masterpieces."

There are a select amount of museums involved in the Project, including The Museum of Modern Art [MOMA] in New York City, the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin, the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, the National Gallery in London, the Palace of Versailles in France, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, The State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, Russia, and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. The other Museums involved in the Google Art Project can be found here...

    Within each museum, you can explore and virtually move around, learning more about both the museum and paintings within it. When you see a piece of art that interests you, you can view it at high resolution and use the custom viewer to zoom in and see the painting in a whole new way. There is also an info panel that allows you to read more about the artwork, find more works by that artist, and watch related YouTube videos.

    Here is just a glimpse of how closely you can view a painting, using Van Gogh's Starry Night.
