  • Rembrandt's The Night Watch in hyper resolution

    The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has posted a 44.8 Gigapixel image of Rembrandt's The Night Watch. Don't worry, clicking the link doesn't download the massive image. (I wouldn't do that to you...with-out warning!) You'll get a webpage with just the painting on it. Now start clicking on it.

    Here's more on the story behind the picture and the painting itself.

          Javaphile that better not be a joke. I just spent 20 mins looking and still haven't found it. Better than Where's Wally.

          It's all a conspiracy between noonar, flynnaus, and myself just to keep y'all busy while locked down!
