Today is the 161st birthday of Vincent Van Gogh (Birthday: March 30, 1853). Except from the rich information and images on the web, his work is also available in Gigapixel technology by Google Culture Institute. The format is really amazing and allows to zoom in the great level of a brushstroke. So everyone can discern all the very details from an extremely close view - every brushstroke, every texture and every tone. You can see them in http://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/entity/%2Fm%2F07_m2
