40,000 Artworks from 250 Museums, Now Viewable for Free at the Redesigned Google Art Project

Today, why not have a look at Google Art Project? Though we’ve posted about it before, you’ll want to check out its slick new redesign — not to mention its expanded collection, which now includes more than 40,000 works of art from over 250 museums. TechCrunch’s Frederic Lardenois writes that the latest iteration of Google Art Project’s “improved search tools now make it significantly easier to filter any list of artworks by artist, place, data and related events. [ ... ] Some of the most important artworks are also available as gigapixel images.

Many museums also allow you to browse their galleries using Google Street View.” Related Content: Portal:Arts. The Creative Finder: Find Anyone from Anywhere on The Search Engine for Creatives. Victor Enrich Creates Playful And Surreal Architecture Fictions. A few weeks back we posted about Filip Dujardin’s digitally manipulated buildings, which gave buildings found in and around Ghent, Belgium an Escherian spin.

Victor Enrich Creates Playful And Surreal Architecture Fictions

And since then we’ve come across another photographer, Victor Enrich, who likes to bend reality by turning architecture into surreal playgrounds by forming buildings that, while fiction, are sometimes reminiscent of Frank Gehry‘s iconic, if controversial, designs. Where Filip Dujardin’s manipulations were subtle and implausible in their re-imaginings, the images below are far more outlandish. Buildings are bent over like a concertina or plonked down on the beach, stairways lead off into the sky, high-rise apartments have grown bull horns, and houses are completely tipped over with roofs sitting at ground level. Below is a selection of some of Enrich’s more elaborate redesigns, head to Victor Enrich’s website for more fictions. @stewart23rd.

Ministère de la culture - Direction des musées de France - Base Joconde. Fine art. Fine art, from the 17th century on, has meant art forms developed primarily for aesthetics, distinguishing them from applied arts that also have to serve some practical function.

Fine art

Historically, the 5 main fine arts were painting, sculpture, architecture, music and poetry, with performing arts including theater and dance.[1] Today, the fine arts commonly include additional forms, such as film, photography, conceptual art, and printmaking. However, in some institutes of learning or in museums, fine art and frequently the term fine arts (pl.) as well, are associated exclusively with visual art forms. [citation needed] The word "fine" does not so much denote the quality of the artwork in question, but the purity of the discipline.

[citation needed] This definition tends to exclude visual art forms that could be considered craftwork or applied art, such as textiles.
