Dear Colleagues, The Art Project by Google: Museums around the World http://www.googleartproject.com/ Brand New February 2, 2011 posted by Allen Google keeps on inventing New Products and Services for its worldwide audience = all of us... Now you can visit museums all around the world for free and at your leisure and choosing: The Muesum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York City The Palce at Versailles, France The Hermitage in St.Petersburg, Russia The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands The Uffizi Palace in Florence, Italy etc. And view up-close and personal hundreds of masterful paintings... I just visited one of my favorite museums: MOMA, having grown-up in New York City, and viewed one of my favorite paintings: "The Sleeping Gypsy" by Henri Rousseau, 1897. Wow, what an "emotional resonance"... This Painting is like an old friend, a longtime brother "re-visited"... It's pure magic for me... beyond words... So I'll just say "thank you, and have an artful week..." Allen
