Google Does Art

Can't make it to the Rijksmuseum but you just have to see Vermeer's Milkmaid? Or did you want to take a stroll through the Tate but don't want to deal with the jet lag? Well, Google's at it again--because of their partnership with international museums you can now tour their collections via the Google Art Project. What's more, the images they have taken of the artwork is at such a high quality that you can zoom in to study the masters' brushwork with amazing detail. As an added bonus, you can put together a collection of your own, borrowing works from some of the world's most famous art museums--think of it as fantasy baseball for art lovers.
