More Landscapes & Street Views
I've updated my Paintings on Street View application with some more landscape paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The application now includes paintings of Paris, Naples and New York, in addition to the previous paintings of Venice.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has released 394,000 images from its collection into the public domain. These images can now be downloaded for limited non-commercial, educational, and personal use. I've taken some of these paintings and superimposed them on top of the Google Maps Street View images of the scenes depicted.
Use the orange 'Menu' button in the app to view the available paintings and click on a painting thumbnail image to see it superimposed on Street View. You can use the slider control to adjust the opacity of the painting and to view the Street View area hidden beneath.
