As Open Culture notes, the Italian web site Haltadefinizione has a unique way to view six masterpieces from the famous  Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

Each painting can be viewed in super high resolution—close to 28 billion pixels, a resolution 3,000 times greater than your normal digital photo—providing the ability to examine the details with an unprecedented closeness.

The paintings featured here include Botticelli’s  The Birth of Venus ; Leonardo da Vinci’s  Annunciation and  The Last Supper ; Verrocchio,  The Baptism of Christ by Verrocchio and da Vinci; Caravaggio’s  Bacchus ; and the  Portrait of Eleonora of Toledo by Bronzino.
