James McNeill Whistler in the Touraine and yet more Museums go viral


Hi,  one  post that gets the most hits on my blog is the link to the World’s Art Museums who have started to digitalise their collections (click here to see previous post).  Well I’ve just re-visited the site and discovered that the number of museums involved has grown tremendously from the original 17 to 184 museums! So do visit – should the desire take you – it’s well worth it.

To whet your appetite here’s part of a painting reproduced on the site by James McNeill Whistler from the period when he honeymooned in the Touraine.
