Rijksmuseum Digitizes & Makes Free Online 210,000 Works of Art, Masterpieces Included! | Open Culture #art #digital @rijksmuseum


We all found it impressive when Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum put up 125,000 Dutch works of art online. “Users can explore the entire collection, which is handily sorted by artist, subject, style and even by events in Dutch history,” explained Kate Rix in our first post announcing it.” “Not only can users create their own online galleries from selected works in the museum’s collection, they can download Rijksmuseum artwork for free to decorate new products.”

But we posted that almost two and a half years ago, and you can hardly call the Rijksmuseum an institution that sits idly by while time passes, or indeed does anything at all by half measures…And so they’ve kept hard at work adding to their digital archive, which, as of this writing, offers nearly 210,000 works of art.
