The Rijkswidget places great art an icon away
March 1st, 2010

The Rijksmuseum’s magnificent collection of art now displays on webpages and smartphones. Since the early days of the web, Amsterdam’s grand art museum has been at the forefront of the online museum sector for web design and for generously interfacing its collections. In the mobile era, Rijkswidget puts the art — in small size for the iPhone or large for webpages — an icon away:

The Rijksmuseum widget is now available at the iPhone App Store. This free iPhone application enables users to admire a different painting from the Rijksmuseum’s collection every day. One of the museum’s 1,000 masterpieces is displayed whenever you press the icon on the screen. You can then rotate or zoom in on the image. The application also offers links to the Rijksmuseum’s website for more information. Thanks to the widget and the iPhone, the public can now enjoy the Rijksmuseum’s collection anywhere and at any time.
