A collection of public domain artworks in hi-res with a magnifying glass
Here we have a collection of public domain art works that I find particularly
beautiful. Aside from simply wanting to share them with you, I also greatly enjoyed coding the
magnifying function. This JS trick is an example you find in the W3 basics, but there was still
considerable work to be done to fit their basic JS example into the modularity of Vue and the
responsiveness of Bootstrap.
I really enjoy opening this page up on my phone when I'm stuck in traffic and pouring over the
immaculate details of these pieces. It's truly astonishing to see how fine and meticulous these
paintings are built up and to realize that (much like code) every artwork is the end result of
endless iterations and updates, tweaks and alterations. I find these things truly inspiring and I
hope you do too.
