The Google Art Project

Today I went to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.


Thanks to Google, I was able to get reaaally close to the paintings and be able to see Van Gogh's thick brushstrokes (amazing!)  and no one told me to step back and it was a delicious feeling.  No just that, also each painting has information about its history and its artist (some come with videos!).

So exciting!

Here are 3 quick amazing videos about the project. My favorite is the behind the scenes one, I always love to see the process of how a project was done.

Another reason to love google :)

I already know I'll be spending most of my weekend exploring all these museums, while drinking a cup of hot chocolate. 

Have a great weekend everyone!
