  • Why are so many books listed as "Borrow Unavailable" at the Internet Archive?
    Yes, great works of art can and should be preserved by making images and data freely available. How much of that is being done? Quite frankly, I don't know, but there are a number of museums that make their collections available to view online. Check out some of the links below. - Source: Hacker News / 8 days ago

  • How do I get a custom print of a piece of art?
    If this is the case, hurdle #2 is getting a high resolution scan of the work. Your first stop should be the museum's website - they might have it right there for download. If it's a really well-known artist or piece, you might also find it at - they have thousands of hi-res scans. Source: about 1 year ago
  • My 3 year old son drew "a rooster"
    Uh, yeah. You need to create and environment for him to do this all the time. You need to drop money on supplies and see which he gravitates towards. You need to feed all the art in the world and see what he gravitates to, you can do this with with a Google Arts and Culture account You need to get season passes to set museums so he can study the textures and light.

  • Daily painting for wallpaper
    You could kindly ask the dev to port it on windows as well ( ) or try (you can emulate Android on Windows) or maybe make some noise and aks some dev on fiverr to write a software that scrapes art form and (always wanted a way to download hires pictures from this). Source: over 1 year ago
  • I am teaching a high school Art History class and need some advice...
    Google Arts and Culture is a great resource with a fairly good selection. A lot of the art is photographed at very high resolution, and allows for some really impressive zooming. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Looking for art work
    As for page weathering, search some library site ( is a good starting point) for ancient books. You should be able to find some physical tome from a thousand years ago that has public-domain photos of it. Find a high resolution one, find a part of a page that's well-weathered, and use that as a page background, possibly with modification. My stuff with a page background is using a blank...

  • Recommendations?
    I would also recommend Smarthistory, Wikiart and Google Arts and Culture . The first is a resource on art history, the second gives an overview of the oeuvre of artists and the third is a bit of both. You can also create your own collections on A&C, which is nice and helps a lot (favourite works, works you want to study a bit more...). There's also a plethora of YouTube Channels out there... From the niche and... Source: almost 2 years ago
