«Have you ever seen a work of art—on a poster, in a book, on a billboard, or even in one of the Met's galleries—and simply had to know more about it? Now you can. I'm pleased to announce a new collaboration with Google that lets you take a picture of a work of art with your mobile device and link straight to more information on metmuseum.org. This is yet another milestone in our effort to provide global access to our collections.»

More than 76,000 two-dimensional works of art from the Met are currently recognizable through Google Goggles, including works from our American, Asian, photographs, drawings and prints, European paintings, and Islamic collections. So snap a picture . . . and explore the world of art on metmuseum.org.
