Rijksmuseum Digital CollectionJanuary 9, 2013
The Rijksmuesum in the Netherlands hosts some incredible pieces of art from Dutch Master artists such as Rembrandt and Vermeer. Fortunately for us, you no longer have to travel all the way to Amsterdam to see them with the Rijksmuseum Digital Collection.
On the Rijksmuseum Digital Collection you can search and browse by artists, subjects and types of work. The images are high-resolution and the zoom function allows you to see incredible detail. It’s fascinating to be able to zoom in to the point where you can see brush strokes and small deterioration with age.
After setting up a free account on the site you can create your own online gallery collection by selecting different works. You can also download images and share your collection.
