Learning is more difficult without enjoyment and it is best accomplished through fun This is sometimes called “edutainment.”
Being able to explore a masterpiece interactively means having direct close-up contact with the work. We can’t touch paintings and frescoes and our distance from them can make it hard to get the best look at them. This can make deeper study of painting technique and of figures feel more abstract and harder to achieve.
However with gigapixel images, the original colors and details are all faithfully saved and reproduced. There is one more advantage, which is being able to navigate through every little detail, really by every brush stroke. You can count all of the pearls in a necklace, look into the eyes of a character or follow the arabesque decorations on some clothing. You can establish a whole new relationship with art that is warmer, deeper and more entertaining.
