The Google Art Project is a digital museum that makes the world’s art treasures accessible to everyone – visitors can explore museums from around the globe and experience the art in huge detail.
Nationalmuseum is one of the museums chosen for phase 2 of the project. The project covers a total of 151 museums from 40 countries, with over 30,000 works on show between them.
Nationalmuseum is starting its contribution with around 70 works from its collections. The sample primarily showcases Swedish art from the 16th century to the early 20th century. A few internationally renowned artists such as Leyster, Renoir and Rembrandt are also included.
Since its inception in 2011, over 20 million people have visited Google Art and created more than 200,000 private galleries.
