Top 10 Europeana objects for February

This is the Top 10 of most viewed objects in Europeana based on the number of pageviews on, for the month of February 2011. Note that these 10 account for less than 0.7% of the total number object pages viewed: Europeana is the ultimate Long Tail application.

1. Girl with a Pearl Earring – Vermeer, from the Mauritshuis. This wonderful museum is about 1200m from the Europeana offices 🙂
