Pocket Art Galleries for Smartphones
Pictures were taken with an ultra-high resolution robotic camera
A new Google mobile app – Arts & Culture – gives art lovers the chance to visit galleries through their phones.
On Monday Google’s press service reported the new feature.
The first version of the application collected all 36 paintings belonging to the brush of Jan Vermeer from 18 museums in seven countries. But now art fans can experience all of Vermeer’s known art in one place.
“The collection is divided into virtual halls, accompanied by hints and explanations for each artist’s work,” Google wrote.
Pictures were taken with an ultra-high resolution robotic camera, designed specifically for art.
To try the art gallery in augmented reality on your own is extremely easy. Just download Google’s Arts & Culture app.
