New Virtual Exhibition Opens Next Week on Europeana.eu; Will Include New Zooming Option to View Images

From the Europeana Blog:

We are pleased to make avail­able an exhi­bi­tion pro­vided by the Jew­ish His­tor­i­cal Museum (JHM). What makes this vir­tual exhi­bi­tion so excit­ing is that it unveils some of the works in the unique exhi­bi­tion From Dada to Sur­re­al­ism: Jew­ish Avant-Garde Artists from Roma­nia, 1910–1938 run­ning from June 1 until Octo­ber 2, 2011, in the Jew­ish His­tor­i­cal Museum, Amsterdam.

The exhi­bi­tion shows more than sev­enty works of art from the period 1910 –1938. The major­ity of the works have never been on dis­play before in the Nether­lands, or any­where out­side Roma­nia.  You can view a selec­tion of these works in the vir­tual exhi­bi­tion on Europeana.

The vir­tual exhi­bi­tion will launch in Eng­lish and Dutch, and will soon be avail­able in more languages. [Our emphasis] Exciting new fea­tures include a zoom­ing option, allow­ing you to view incred­i­ble details in the images. It is also pro­duced in a new style, mean­ing that the art nou­veau exhi­bi­tion already avail­able on Euro­peana will undergo a makeover. After this exhi­bi­tion, the next vir­tual exhi­bi­tion to launch is from the Jew­ish Museum Lon­don (JML).
