Since Pete is still a bit absent, posts about art are in shorter supply. Filling in, I would like to point you to one of the most famous museums in the world, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, aka The Met.
Of course, you do not need diablog for that. As the largest collection in the US, located in the most wonderful place on earth, everybody has heard of The Met.
The reason I am mentioning the Met is, that they have uploaded information about more than 400,000 of its +2,000,000 million pieces. And most of them are with high resolution, high quality pictures.
You can find the online collection here:
Naturally, nothing beats seeing it live. But this is second best thing. Plus, even The Met cannot put all its art on display all the time. Neither can a normal person visit The Met that often.
The online collection is a brilliant recourse to study art. Or to just browse it on a rainy day.
Kudos to The Met for the online presentation,
