this is such a great extension if you appreciate human art. i have been using it since it was the google art project. i would give it six stars if that were possible. if you find that you are getting a black screen - this appears to be an artefact of a recent update. "turn it it off and on again" - a quick uninstall and re-install will fix the problem.
