The museum, known for strict rules that prohibit the shooting of exhibits, decided to meet the art lovers.
The Barnes Foundation Museum digitized and laid out about 2,000 works of art from its collection. As Hyperallergic writes, images of some of them were published a few years ago, but now the volume and functionality of the digital archive has significantly expanded.
Users among other things can view the exhibits in high resolution, look for them by type, author name, creation time and color shades. Algorithms developed with the use of machine learning, automatically compose a list of works of art, similar to those viewed by the visitor of the site. Most of the works are also accompanied by a detailed description, exhibition history and other data.
A significant part of the Barnes Foundation digital collection is paintings. In the archive you can find, for example, the works of Gustave Courbet, Paul Cezanne, Edgar Degas, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso and other famous artists.
