Museums that can be visited with just one click

Museums that can be visited with just one click

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

Alas, the time has come for everyone to do their part. All of us have to make sacrifices and stay at home as much as possible. For some it will be easier and for others less. 

We are here to offer you activities to do from the comfort of your rooms and in total safety, and being a magazine that deals with art, we could not start with anything else but museums. We know, in this period they are closed, but fortunately for us, and for you, there is more than one way to visit them. 

Here are some of the museums, Italian and not, which can be visited comfortably with a click. 

Milan

Pinacoteca di Brera

If your passion is painting, then you can’t miss the virtual visit of the Brera Art Gallery, starting from the famous courtyard and arriving to the famous Dead Christ by Mantegna.

Museo Poldi Pezzoli

Just a stone’s throw away, or rather a click away, you can find yourself inside one of the most famous and beautiful museum-houses in Milan which acts as a treasure chest for the collection born in the mid-1800s thanks to Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli’s passion for art. 

Museo del Novecento

If you are interested in the art of the last century, then the virtual tour of the Museum of the Twentieth Century could be for you. Among the works of Boccioni and Fontana we are sure that an entire afternoon will fly by in the blink of an eye. 

Florence

Uffizi Gallery

For once you can enter the Uffizi without making its famous and endless queue, you can also stop in front of your favorite works as long as you want, no one will tell you to move quickly to the next room. 

Santa Maria del Fiore

After all these paintings maybe it’s time to take a break, and what better place than under the majesty of Brunelleschi’s masterpiece?!

Venice 

Doge’s Palace

Even if the Carnival is over, it’s always the right time to drop by Venice. A must for every tourist is the Doge’s Palace, from where you can admire all the splendor of St. Mark’s Square. 

Ca’ Rezzonico

Close your eyes, imagine you are on a boat and voilà, here we are at Ca’ Rezzonico, ready to immerse ourselves in the furnishings, paintings and sculptures of the Venetian 18th century. Don’t forget to look out your windows and contemplate the Grand Canal. 

Rome 

Vatican Museums

Our tour continues in Rome, more precisely in the Vatican. This time make yourselves comfortable, because the visit to the Vatican Museums could last a while. 

Capitoline Museums 

With an exhibition area of 12,977 m², the Capitoline Museums are a must-see, or rather a place to see over and over again. 

Paris

Musée du Louvre 

Our journey has no boundaries, so here we are in the most famous museum in the world. Finding the right angle to see the Mona Lisa has never been easier.

Musée d’Orsay

If your passion is Impressionism, then you’d better take a jump on the other side of the Seine and get lost in the halls of the Musée d’Orsay, between Monet, Van Gogh and Degas. 

Musée de l’Orangerie

The Musée d’Orsay wasn’t enough for you?! Then take a little more time for the magnificent Musée de l’Orangerie and let yourself be enveloped by Monet’s Water Lilies.  

Tour Eiffel 

A key stop on any trip to Paris is the Eiffel Tower. Every opportunity is good to return, climb and enjoy the city from above. 

London

National Gallery of Art 

Another click, another country. The only stop in the English capital that we would like to point out is the one at the National Gallery of Art. There is no Coronavirus or Brexit to hold, the forces of art break down all barriers. 

Spain 

Dalí theatre museum

Hoping to find a warmer climate we move to Spain, more precisely to Figueres in Catalonia. Here let yourself be transported inside one of the most brilliant minds of the last century, that of Salvador Dalí. 

Amsterdam

Rijksmuseum

From hot Spanish to cold Dutch, but for good reason. Take your time to admire both the architecture of the Rijksmuseum and its works, including Rembrandt’s Night Watch. 

Van Gogh Museum 

We stay in town to discover the works of one of the greatest artists in the history of art. The Van Gogh Museum offers a unique itinerary to discover the works of the artist, but also the life of the man behind them. 

Anne Frank House 

We leave the museums to enter an emblematic place where time has stood still. Almost always impossible to visit due to the large number of reservations, technology takes us directly inside the Anne Frank House. 
PS Given the amount of free time available, for those who pretended to read it at school, The Diary of Anne Frank is a book that should be dusted off from time to time. 

New York

Metropolitan Museum 

Among the various museums that await us overseas we can not postpone a visit to the Metropolitan Museum. Among the vast collection of the New York museum is impossible not to find something that attracts us. 

Guggenheim Museum 

Let’s stay in the Big Apple but change genres. At 1071 Fifth Avenue, the Guggenheim Museum’s magnificent collection awaits us. Take advantage of it to discover the beauty of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture. 

Washington

Smithsonian American Art Museum

This stage will probably take you more than a day, in fact the Smithsonian American Art Museum is famous for being one of the most inclusive and extensive art collections in the world. Have fun wandering around its large pavilions, a bit like Ben Stiller in A Night at Museum 2. 

The White House

Once we get to Washington, why not pay Trump a visit? 

Our tour ends here, but there are still dozens and dozens of museums that you can visit with just one click and you can find them all on the Google Arts & Culture section. 

We hope that this virtual journey has made you want to visit them, or revisit them, live all these places, hoping that this can happen as soon as possible.

Art is Resistance – Mauro Gatti

Giulia Pacciardi · 3 months ago · Art

Monday will start a new week of Art is Resistance, the charity project curated by Collater.al, with a new artist, a new artwork and a live performance on Instagram.
After the illustrators Ale Giorgini, Osvaldo Casanova, Fernando Cobelo, Gianluca Folì, Johnny Cobalto, Francesco Poroli, the artist who will perform live and put his work up for auction is Mauro Gatti.

In the last few weeks many artists have taken turns on our and your screens, all belonging to a different world, but all with the same goal: to help the Lombardy region to cope with the health emergency caused by Covid-19.

While you’re waiting for the live broadcast with Mauro Gatti, who will connect from Los Angeles where he lives and works, take a tour of all the active auctions, including that of the designer Erasmo Ciufo who closed last week’s Art is Resistance.

MAURO GATTI – on Collater.al‘s Instagram profile and on his profile from 4:00 pm on 13.04.2020

Originally from Italy, I Live in LA where everyone surfs except me.
I have 15+ years award-winning creative career (including a 2017 Emmy Award for Best Interactive) and I love ideas, innovation, pizza and dogs.
I love to make people happy with my art across all kinds of projects, from illustration to creative direction, children’s books and game design.
In 2018 I created The Happy Broadcast, a counter hate and fear culture project where I feature positive news from around the world.
A visual antidote to the doom and gloom we see and hear in the media.

On Monday 13th, Mauro Gatti will be live on our Instagram profile and on his staff and will work on an ad-hoc illustration that, as soon as finished, will be auctioned on 32actions where he will stay for a month.

The colorful and dynamic illustrations by Petra Eriksson

The colorful and dynamic illustrations by Petra Eriksson

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Art

Colorful, dynamic and daring. These are the illustrations of Petra Eriksson, a young illustrator of Swedish origin who now lives and works in Barcelona. This is not the first time we talk about the work of this young artist, about two years ago we focused on the beautiful portraits that led her to edit the illustrations for the book Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women. Today we come back to talk about her because in these years Petra Eriksson’s portfolio has continued to grow, starting to give space to other subjects as well. 

Thus, the production of portraits is interspersed with two other subjects that have become more and more present, landscapes and food

Always characterized by safe and bold use of color and full backgrounds, Petra Eriksson’s work fascinates her 80,000 followers every day on Instagram, but that’s not all. In fact, Petra Eriksson’s style has led her to collaborate with clients such as The New Yorker, The Guardian, and The Sunday Telegraph

Below you can find a selection of her work and find out more go on Petra Eriksson’s website and Instagram profile

“It can’t rain all the time,” Pejac’s window

“It can’t rain all the time,” Pejac’s window

Emanuele D'Angelo · 3 months ago · Art

We are going through a difficult, hard time, we have said it many times, but hopefully, as soon as we get out of it.
The creativity of artists, however, has not remained in quarantine, quite the contrary. Pejac, street artist that over the years we have come to know, continues to amaze us even from his studio in the center of Madrid with his latest work entitled “It can’t rain all the time“, a quote from the famous movie “The Raven“, perfect for the period we are all going through.

The world-famous Barcelona-born artist replicates great classical masterpieces in a modern key, but not only that, his minimalist art varies from miniature drawings to striking site-specific interventions.
Pejac skillfully embellishes public spaces, but with his works, he wants to provide careful reflections on current themes, such as social and environmental issues. 

This time, however, he had to adapt to the decrees in force, not being able to beautify public spaces, he transformed his window into an artwork inspired by the famous “Golconda” by Magritte.
The acrylic figures, painted directly on the windows of his studio, seem to rain from the sky for an optical effect, protected by vintage gas masks and well-spaced one from the other as required by current regulations.

Once again, Pejac surprises us, in a simple way, inviting us to unleash our imagination beyond all limits, even if our view from the home is always the same.
You try it too!
