The wonderfully perceptive and accomplished art critic Roberta Smith has written an article entitled “The Work of Art in the Age of Google” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at the Google Art Project, Google’s most recent step in Webifying the world.  Art Project offers, via an adaptation of Google’s Street View technology, virtual tours of, at the moment, 17 major international art museums, including, ultra-high definition close-ups of some of the works.  It’s not perfect, but it is really quite amazing, and it does offer the opportunity to art-lovers near or far to spend some quality time quietly contemplating some beautiful work, ranging from Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) to Chris Ofili’s “No Woman, No Cry” at the Tate Modern, and many others.

An absolute must.  It’s that simple.
