Rijksmuseum digital exhibition
The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has launched a very cool digital exhibition called Accessorize. It's in flash and sort of a bandwidth hog, it loads fine for me over FiOS but your mileage may vary depending on your ISP. Anyway, it's worth whatever wait time! The exhibition covered accessories from 1550 to 1950 and you can drill down in the images to an insane level of detail. It's a bit late for my interests, but there are several pieces of gold work embroidery in the 1600-1650 section that are really stunning. There's lots of great inspiration, who doesn't love goldwork?
