Google has launched a neat new extension for Chrome that brings you a fresh piece of art from the likes of Monet or Van Gogh every time you open a tab
The Google Art Project add-on comes courtesy of the Google Cultural Institute, the Google arm that has been working with a number of art and cultural institutions over the past few years to help digitize offline exhibits — this includes documenting the history of cinema, the fall of the Iron Curtain, and more.
The Google Art Project specifically has seen the Internet giant work with some of the world’s most renowned institutions to bring some of the most well-known pieces of art online.
You can actually tweak the settings within the extension, so that you either see a new piece of art every day with each tab you open, or literally a new piece of art with every new tab you open.
This reminds us a little bit of the DailyArt app, which pushes a classic piece of art to your phone every day. But for those tethered to their laptop, Google’s new extension delivers a little cultural enlightenment too.[via Engadget]
