"The art is coming to you, in ultra-high resolution, gigapixel images from Google Cultural Institute.

See extraordinary levels of detail in famous works of art like Vermeer’s Girl with the Pearl Earring and Van Gogh’s Starry Night.... 'In the first five years of the Google Cultural Institute,' Google admits, 'we’ve only been able to share about 200 gigapixel images.' The process can now be automated, however, expanding the gallery to 1800+ images and counting, with the invention of a sophisticated machine called the Art Camera."
