The Google Art Project

Today, my son Eric sent along a gift, the Google Art Project.  The painting he sent was "The Feast in the House of Simon" which hangs in the Palace of Versailles.  It is one of a series of paintings by Veronese depicting religious banquets.  Jokingly, I wrote back and commented that it looked like his backyard on any given gameday.
Then, I really took a look at the site.  It is wonderful.  These are the art galleries and museums you always hoped to visit but most likely will never have the opportunity.
This is a snippet of what it is all about:
