The artwork of Richard Long is in an exhibit called Heaven and Earth at the Tate Britain. Actually this show is the first one of Long's for almost two decades in London. The Tate Online definitely does his magnificent landscape works justice and the introduction here states that his work "explores relationships between time, distance, geography, measurement and movement." Visitors unfamiliar with Long's work should check out the link "Explore the Exhibition", on the menu on the left hand side of the homepage. The paragraphs here introduce the visitor to his inspiration, walking, and a bit about his history. There are ten online rooms in which his artwork is displayed, and each work can be enlarged. In the link "Works in Focus" small shaded rectangles on different areas of the works provide the visitor with the ability to zoom in on that section. A slideshow option is also available to effortlessly view all of the intimate sections of the "Works in Focus".
