The Art Project is a unique collaboration with some of the world’s most acclaimed art institutions to enable people to discover and view artworks online in extraordinary detail. Working with over 250 institutions, Google has put tens of thousands of works of art from more than 6,000 artists online. This involved taking a selection of super high resolution images of famous artworks, as well as collating more than thirty thousand other images into one place. It also included building 360 degree tours of individual galleries using Street View ‘indoor’ technology. The project has expanded dramatically since it first launched. More than 45,000 objects are now available to view in high resolution, an increase from 1,000 in the first version.

Moods in the work of the Skagen painters

 

For 50 years, from the mid 1870s, a colony of artists settled in Skagen, a fishing village situated on the northernmost tip of Denmark. These artists were mostly painters, but the colony expanded to include sculptors, poets, architects, composers and musicians. They were attracted by the scenery and quality of the light in the area and took up plein air painting influenced partly by the French impressionists, although realist movements such as the Barbizon school also remained a very strong influence.

They thus broke away from the rather rigid traditions of the academies of fine arts, espousing instead the trends they had learned in Paris.

This exhibition explores the works by leading Danish painters of this period, and showcases the how the environment influences the artists and their imaginations.
