Google Cultural Institute: Albertina

The Google Cultural Institute, with its digital images of millions of artworks, offers many diverse wonders, including this phenomenal catalog from the Albertina. Founded in Vienna in 1805, the Albertina houses one of world's largest and most significant print rooms, featuring approximately 65,000 drawings and nearly a million old master prints. With this exhibit, readers may peruse 152 of these artworks, starting with Albrecht Durer's 16th century masterpiece, Hare, and progressing through Degas' 1905 painting, Two Dancers, and Rudolf von Alt's, View of the Alservorstadt, in which the artist captures a single moment in time from 1872. Clicking on Details calls up more information about each work of art. In addition, the images boast an astonishingly high resolution, so that readers may zoom in to the degree that they can actually see the brush strokes that a painter used 400 years ago to depict a bowl of fruit or a religious vision.
