Google has actually done something cool (again!). I can never really decide with them. Anyway, Walter Benjamin sends his regards. 17 museums took part in what I’d liked to call “a street view for art”. You can make virtual tours of museums like MoMA for free, zoom into the high-resolution pictures and so on…I’ve never exactly been prone to be found in a museum on a regular basis except for specific artists, but this kind of appeals to my geeky side – just because I can. Great. Take a tour. ^^

Here’s some Blake in the Tate Gallery to start you off with… http://www.googleartproject.com/museums/tate/satan-smiting-job-with-sore-boils-64
