Google Art Project — Growing like Topsy


Long story by Roberta Smith in the April 11 New York Times short: "The expanded second iteration of the Google Art Project was unveiled last week."

Version 1 made its debut early last year, featuring 17 museums and just over 1,000 works in a single medium — painting.

The latest update "makes available images of more than 32,000 works in 31 mediums and materials, from the collections of 151 museums and art organizations worldwide."

There's lots of room to grow: "Although there are now more than 6,500 names on the list of artists, the site still does not include a single work by Picasso."

Fair warning: should you visit, there goes the day.
