What is this about this virtual gallery about:
« This virtual gallery is accessible online and is a selection from the extensive collection of Western graphic art in Prints and Drawings at the British Museum. The actual collection has more that 50,000 drawings and more than two million prints. This collection includes work by artists such as Durer, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Hogarth, Goya, Kollwitz and Picasso ». (British Museum Website 2023)
The virtual gallery is divided into old master and modern contemporary artists.
What I like most
It’s great to be able to access the collection online from virtually anywhere in the world. I like that there’s a wideselection of art you can look ( different themes and drawing styles). I also like that they included art from various countries. It is easy to view this virtual gallery and I love that each art represented has some information about it.
What I did not like
However the virtual gallery has a very small selection with 13 art pieces. That’s very small compared to the 50,000 drawings and I would have like to view a bit more of them. Also many part of the world are not represented perhaps because not many art are in this virtual gallery.
Would I recommend this
Accessing the full collection is possible so I do recommend this virtual gallery as a preview. However I do think more of the collection should be included in this gallery.
