The 10 Best & Worst Google Arts Matches

10 Best & Worst Google Arts Matches

If you’ve been on Twitter at all this week then you’ve heard of the new Google Arts & Culture app. The app was originally designed to allow you the ability to virtually tour museums around the world and discover new artwork… then they went and added a new feature.

Search Any Name, Get Instant Results


“Take a selfie and discover if your portrait is in a museum,” the app states in its app store description. Once you take a photo of yourself, facial recognition technology works to match your face with a famous portrait. Of course, like with every app’s new feature, results can vary, making for some amazing comparisons and some not-so-hot matches.

Here are the 10 best and worst Google Arts matches.
