Ever wished you could compare two artworks side by side
? Maybe even compare their details, technique, colours?
Well, you can.
The Art Project feature Compare
enables you to pick any two works from the site and to zoom into both of them, side by side.
How does it work?
From an aggregated view of artworks, drag any two artworks to the left-hand side bar of the site, one after the other. Both artworks will then appear on your screen and you will be able to zoom into both of them separately.
There are lots of interesting works to compare: paintings and sketches, artists that influenced and inspired each other, the evolution of an artist's work and technique, representations of the same reality by different artists... and many more!
In the example below, we compared two versions of "The Life Line" by Winslow Homer
, a drawing from 1882 and the final painting he created in 1884: http://g.co/artproject/ar5d
