He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

J. Paul Getty Museum on Google Art Project

Posted by Charley Parker at 11:31 pm

J. Paul Getty Museum on Google Art Project: ean Baptiste Siméon Chardin [with detail], John William Godward, Roelandt Savery, Vincent van Gogh, Titian [Tiziano Vecellio], Nicolaes Maes, Camille Pissarro, Aert de Gelder, Claude Monet, Pieter de Hooch
Having never been to the J. Paul Getty Museum, all I know about it is limited to what I see online, but judging from that, and particularly from the selection from the museum available for viewing in zoomable high-resolution versions on the Google Art Project, their collection is quite fantastic.

I’ve included a detail from the Chardin still life at top (second down) as a reminder of how terrific the zoomable images are on the Google Art Project (see my previous post on the Google Art Project).

    Wow, I’ll have to get back up to the Getty.
    Been a while, and at any given time certain artworks strike a chord completely differently than other times.

    Here the Nicolaes Maes stopped me in my tracks, also the Roelandt Savery… Aert de Gelder… well you can’t go wrong with Chardin.

    Thanks for the post Charlie.
