Five Great and Iconic Galleries You Can Still Explore Online

 

Van Gogh Museum

It's no wonder that Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, has a whole entire museum dedicated to who is arguably their most influential artist, Vincent Van Gogh. See the amazing works of an icon who changed the course of art history forever. The quintessential "struggling artist," his paintings and his story continue to captivate people from all over the world. But if you're just at home, you can still check this place out via Google’s Art and Culture Network. The best part is the program allows users to take a closer look at the artworks as if you're actually there!

Metropolitan Museum of Art

As far as introspective as one museum can get, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art trumps practically all the others. Making up three separate establishments throughout Manhattan, this museum houses several of what you would want to know about art. From historic works and cultural artifacts to iconic classics and pieces that reflect the zeitgeist of their times, you'll find everything here and more. And it's the same when you explore it online too! From the comforts of your own home, you can virtually walk through this giant museum that usually takes visitors a full day or two to complete!

Rijksmuseum

It needs to be said, Dutch paintings are severely underrated. Many often focus too much on the works of Mediterranean artists and the Renaissance movement that they conjured up during their time. However, on the other side of Europe, the Netherlands had their own masters that also impacted art history as a whole. And you can see their works at Amsterdam's famous Rijksmuseum, even when you're at home. Their website invited you to peek into the works of Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and more, showcasing that they, too had their own movement that deserves as much, if not more respect!

Musée d’Orsay

Paris has embraced a lot of art movements over the years. It's had its fair share of Renaissance, cubism, surrealism, and more showcased throughout many of the capital's finest galleries. But there's one in particular that highlights Impressionism and Post-Impressionism pieces, the Musée d’Orsay. And it's worth logging into online as much as going to the actual gallery when you're in Paris. Here, the works of such masters as Cézanne, Monet, and Degas can be found here, alluring visitors with their strong brushstrokes yet soft palettes. It's one of the more relaxing galleries on this list

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

If you want something modern, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is the place for you. Though it has a few classic pieces, the gallery is more of a shine to contemporary and modern art. Works that enable viewers to think critically, question reality, and ponder on life's biggest questions. It's very much the museum of intellectuals, but other people who just want to appreciate art are welcome as well. Especially on their online platform. Although exploring the virtual gallery won't show you just how extraordinary the layout and architecture of this iconic gallery really is, the introspective artistic experience remains the same!
