Have you visited an online art exhibition lately?

An international research team involving the University of Vienna and the Max Planck Institute had 240 participants view an interactive Monet Water Lily art exhibition then fill out a questionnaire about their state of mind, pleasure, and meaningfulness of the experience.

  1. The study found that even a few minutes of online art viewing can significantly improve mood and reduce anxiety.
  2. Individuals who love art and nature gained most benefit more from online art viewing.
  3. People unable to visit museums in person for various reasons found this experience helpful.

Overall, the study emphasized the potential of online art viewing as a source of support for well-being, highlighting the positive impact it can have on mood and anxiety.
