Browsing through on of the sites I like, I discovered the below excerpt which led me to this Google invention: Google Art Project.
When Bruegel painted more than 500 years ago, could he have imagined that one day, a dozen generations down the road, his paintings would be viewed on a practically microscopic scale? Such is the wonder of the Google Art Project, the two-year-old platform that now houses more than 30,000 digital versions of famous artworks–some of which are viewable at a radically high resolution.taken from: http://www.fastcodesign.com/1672256/how-google-is-remaking-art-history
Below are a few images showing incredible details of well-known paintings.
Where do you stand from this?
Do you think this is a violation to the artist and the painting itself or you think this is a tool that can be used for a better use?
