Since learning that the Rijksmuseum have posted most of their art collections online, I’ve spent hours browsing the site and marvelling over the works of Rembrandt, Vermeer, and van Gogh, among others. In an unusual move, especially in this day and age of copyright laws, the museum allows you to download high resolution images of art works at no cost via the Rijksstudio part of the site. Since the internet makes it difficult to control the use of images, the director of collections explains that they’d rather have the public use good quality images of art works rather than bad reproductions. Fair enough. Despite having several masterpieces at my finger tips I, of course, had to go and download pictures of cats. Because we all know that’s what the internet is really for.
