Sarah drescher's insight:

Google is currently  setting up an amazing experience for all those who cannot get to the most famous Art Gallaries of the world. Instead of being there, we can explore the galleries here from our computers. Take a 'walk' through the virtual gallery and observe your favourite paintings and rooms. Zoom in on your desired paintings and notice the brush strokes as you will use this in the next task.
