Five-star review for Museum’s online collections guide
Pharos, a web resource which lets the visitor explore the Museum’s world-class collections online, was praised by Web User as "truly illuminating" and "definitely one site that’ll get you inspired about the history of art". The site was congratulated for its "richly researched annotations and high quality reproductions" and "comprehensive, print-friendly analysis" of the Fitzwilliam’s artworks. Pharos’ ‘Making Art’ section - which offers an interactive look at how diverse forms of art are created, from bronze sculpture to Japanese woodblock prints - was also highlighted as a "unique addition to the site" by the magazine.
Visitors to Pharos can enjoy an introductory tour of the Museum’s extensive collections, or can choose to navigate the artworks by themes such as religion, death and love or by time period. Visit Pharos here.
