The Prado Museum Madrid - Google Earth

Postby moongirl » Thu Apr 04, 2013 9:03 am

"Descent of Christ from the Cross" by Dutch Renaissance painter Rogier van der Weyden was the subject of a documentary I watched over Easter. It was then that I became aware of the Prado Gallery online.

Google Earth launches online Prado art gallery
Google Earth has launched a virtual tour of the Prado Museum in Madrid that enables web surfers to examine 14 of its masterpieces in the most minute detail from their computers.

Viewing a Velasquez or a Rembrandt in a place like Spain's Prado museum is a unique experience. Now you can use Google Earth technology to navigate reproductions of the Prado's masterpieces, delving even deeper into the Prado's collection. In Google Earth, you can get close enough to examine a painter's brushstrokes or the craquelure on the varnish of a painting. The images of these works are about 14,000 million pixels, 1,400 times more detailled than the image a 10 megapixel digital camera would take. In addition, you'll be able to see a spectacular 3D reproduction of the museum.
