Google Art Project Redesigns for Better Navigation

Google Art Project adds a Compare button to help examine artwork in-depth.
Google Art Project redesigns the site for better navigation.

Google Art Project launched its faster navigation and new image-driven search features on Monday. The improved search tools make it easier to filter searches by artist, location, data and related events.

More than 40,000 pieces of art from about 250 museums in more than 40 countries can be searched, including descriptions of the artworks, high resolution images, and, in some cases, gigapixel images that allow viewers to zoom into artwork details as never before.

A selection of museums also allow Google Street Views of their galleries.
