Bourgeois Art Gallery

The Google Art Project is a beautiful thing.  It lets you explore the collections of some of the world's finest museums, as well as a lot of obscure ones, all in high-definition.  I thought I'd start a new series sharing some of the stuff I've come across.  Here's the first one.  (My only complaint: they don't let you save the images, so I have to link directly to the artworks.)

Statuettes of High Priest Amenhotep and Priestess Renai

Two Pups

The Threatened Swan


Manuscript Page of Vajrapani and Manjushri

Vaishravana, Guardian King of the North

Saber and Scabbard

Indigo-Blue Sake Ewer


The Rape of Europa

Snow Fields

Washington Sea Eagle

Wow. I wasn't expecting to be able to get up so close and personal.

A lot of them actually look better closer in.
