Prado’s Museum App Lets Viewers See Underneath Its Masterpieces’ Paint
Second Canvas lets people explore 14 of the museum's masterpieces at a highly detailed level.
There are many different ways of appreciating a painting. You can look at it from a comfortable distance to see the work of art in its entirety or step closer to observe exquisite details like brush strokes and texture. However, it may not always be possible to scrutinize a painting in detail in most museums since visitors can only get close to an art piece at a certain distance, especially if the piece is a very valuable masterpiece.
Now there’s a new app that lets users go deeper into some of the masterpieces at the Museo del Prado in Spain.
