The world as seen in Landscape Paintings



This mini documentary, in the form of a Google Map, matches up famous landscape paintings with the scene painted so that you can see what the artist saw, and how he or she interpreted the scene.  The scenes were determined from the names of various painting reproductions found on Wikipedia.
