Two interesting sites were featured in Scout Report.
Edward Hopper (companion web site for Boston Museum of Fine Art
Exhibit May 6 - August 19).
Learn more about the life and iconic work of Edward Hopper, one of the
most enduring American painters of the 20th century.
....Recently, the Library of Congress and the Uffizi Gallery collaborated to
bring da Vinci's 1481 study for the Adoration of the Magi to the United
States. Regrettably, the work only stayed there for several days, but the
Library of Congress created this lovely online feature that allows visitors
to examine this work up close. First-time visitors should start by reading
an introductory essay on the work, and then they can make their way into the
Flash-enabled feature which walks them around the various nuances and
details of this study. The site is rounded out by a link to a film from the
Institute and Museum of the History of Science in Florence that talks about
the creative process that led to this work of art. [KMG]
