I really enjoy how this artwork is cropped by my modified version of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Art Tab. (This is a Chrome add-on that displays art in new browser tabs. I modified the Chrome add-on so it crops the artwork tighter.)

One of the nice features of this Chrome add-on, is that you can click on the image and view the full original artwork on the Art Institute’s website. Here’s the full artwork by Pierre Antoine Mongin, “View of the Park at Versailles: Two Figures on a Bench in a Clearing, Female Statue Nearby

Here’s a good handful of artworks from Pierre Antoine Mongin. All of them are in the public domain, downloadable from the site.

Since that first image in ArtTab was so nice and relaxing, let’s download some of these and crop in close on the details.
