Museums all over the world are closed, but it does not need to prevent you to experience some of the world’s foremost works of art.
We recommend Paris, Rome, Madrid and New York. From the comfort of your couch.
the Louvre, Paris
At the Musée du Louvre we obtain a number of options. A wealth of different tabs, in different ways, shows the way into the enormously comprehensive collection.
At a first glance, the website itself, a thought quaint. But the various temaboksene, who are historically and thematically arranged, turns out to contain lots of interesting and inspiring material.
You can get an insight into life in the museum’s scenery – konserveringsavdelingen. Here are the movies and simple virtual walks through the museum.
But if you prefer the more traditional way to browse through the collection image for the image, it is also possible. “Selected Works” provides an effective introduction to the collection highlights. It also follows a good, informative text for each piece of art that places it in an art historical context.
the Website offers also rich information about the collection’s history. In a short video provides a vivid picture of the building’s architectural development from 1100-century and forward to the twentieth century.
“MONA LISA”: Among the selected works you will find also, of course, the definitive magnum opus; namely, Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa”. Eyes her follow you, seemingly wherever you stand in relation to the image.

Museo del Vaticano in Rome is a tremendous art collection. This is collected by various popes over the centuries. The museum was founded by Pope Julius II in 1506. It is particularly known for its extensive collection of antique masterpieces, as well as major work from the Italian renaissance.
the Website is visually very appealing, and grabs hold of you once with an effective and professionally produced velkomstvideo.
with the help of 3D-technology offers virtual walks through the various halls.
for example, You can click your way into the sistine chapel. It is easy to understand how to navigate around the room by means of arrows. Here one can go close in on Michelangelo’s takfreske, and to study the work closer than if one were present in the physical space.
Yet have the technology some limitations. If one tries to see something other than the roof, it is difficult to get “turned inside out” gaze over towards the walls. Then, the perspective immediately distorted, and it is not so easy to get studied the wonderful veggfreskene performed by ungrenessansens great master. If I didn’t know better, I could have thought that the roof was the only thing important for you to get here. Here, there is definitely a clear improvement.
It could also have been a need for a clearer guidance in relation to the absolute principal works, for the that may not be as familiar with the collection from before.
Overall, this is still a very user-friendly and professional website which has a lot of exciting material to offer.
POPULAR ROOF: Highlight of the vatican museums is Michelangelo’s powerful creation story created as a fresco in the ceiling of the Sistine chapel from 1508-12.

OVERDØVES OFTEN: When one is in the sistine chapel, it is easy that Michelangelo’s powerful takfreske drowning out the young-renessansebildene on the walls. If you want a closer look at the example of Perugino, it is advisable to browse in on the young-the renaissance in order to make the 3D trek.

the Museu del Prado houses one of the world’s finest and most comprehensive collections of european art from the 1100s and forward to the 1900.
the Website is visually inviting, but fairly traditional. There are fewer virtual offers, but a good opportunity to browse through the extensive collection.
For the one who has patience, this can sometimes be well as well as superficial videos that swipe of the art, with limited opportunities to stop at work or the details.
the Prado simply has a lot to offer those who want to go in depth. Texts for each artwork is very good, and there is a clear division of the collection.
Video is a little too academic and out of reach. A part of the sermon is also in Spanish, something that effectively excludes a wider international audience.
PUZZLING: the Hieronymus Bosch “The Garden of Eartley delight” (1503 -15) depicts the creation, paradise and purgatory and hell. A woman is standing on all four with flowers out of the anus, another standing on his hands in a pond with a large strawberry between his legs. A huge person has a torso resembling a broken eggshell. A deeply fascinating painting full of puzzles.

NATIONAL MASTERS: the Collection focuses on the Spanish masters like Goya.

in this country we have unfortunately not impressive digital museums to boast of. Both the national Museum and the Munchmuseet, Oslo, as well as a CODE of Bergen have a website that works more like flat digital posters than a gateway into a rich world of art.
Therefore, it was nice to see that the Henie Onstad Art centre, looked on the floor in a furious pace, and has made a digital version of the exhibition Picasso Suite 347. Curator Karin Hellansjø tells here about this very special alderdomsserien to Picasso. This digital substitution is recommended for all who have missed the physical exhibition.
