Carl Koppeschaar has put together a collection of museum photos, videos and articles that is just amazing. I've spent the last few days looking through these and haven't even scratched the surface yet. Enjoy.

Absolutely amazing!

This looks like an almost inexhaustible source of information. I'm just trying to figure out the enormous work Carl Koppeschaar has made for us - my greatest respect.

Wow, the quantity and quality of these photos and the number of museums that they cover is truly outstanding. Thanks to Matt for posting them here and to Carl for taking them in the first place.

This is an outrageously good collection and resource, thank you for sharing. I'm no theologian, but can we elect Carl as the next god?

I spent way too much time on this website already...I think my wife was getting concerned about my intense focus on the computer for hours on end with a notebook at my side. Thank you for posting this.
