Product Description

Art Authority transports you to an enthralling, real-world art museum filled with works by over 1,000 of the western world's greatest artists, from ancient times to today. Peruse 50,000 paintings and sculptures, organized into eight period-specific rooms, each room a gateway to a whole museum's worth of art. Choose an artist by movement or name, and become instantly immersed in an exhibition devoted just to that artist. Search for and compare different artists' works by title, subject, or location, or just wander at random and get lost in the art.

Art Authority's works are beautifully framed and hung on textured walls, accompanied by title, date, and other details. Works are displayed chronologically, with previews of related items providing added context. You can learn about an artist's life and works, or travel beyond the bounds of a traditional museum and view and compare works in a full-screen slide show or scrolling thumbnail display.

There are also period overviews, time lines, and histories. From the earliest creative pieces to the latest modern and contemporary works, Art Authority provides a stunningly displayed, carefully selected, well organized view of the western art world. It's part world-class art museum, part academic reference library, and part digital coffee-table book.

First off, I love this app! Very relaxing to use and has most of my favorite artists. One thing I would like to see is a way to favorite certain pieces of art for use in a personal gallery. Also, those said favorites would be excluded when you clear the app's artwork cache. Recommended!

Not a techie genius but love what all the new gadgets can do and the possibilities of what they could do??!! - and this app is a shining example. Art - across time and genres - good or bad or not enough - whatever your complaints might be the bottome line is that here you have at least a representative of art, lots of art. You can keep it beside your chair, bed, on your desk, in your purse, pocket, briefcase, backpack - you can carry a mini museum around to share plus have beauty to look at whenever you want (or at least thought provoking if not beautiful to your eyes). Love it - Love it - Love it!

It still has its freezing problem. I had to remove and re-install to get it working again. I don't think it is worth the money at this point. I would advise to get your art book to refer to. My favorite painter is O'keeffe but discovered only 4 pictures-- mainly of her unknown works. There are titles of some of her other works such as the Iris paintings and of Calla lilies but there is a mosiac slide shown when tapped. I am guessing they were copyrighted and could not be obtained! If I had known this I would not have obtained the app. I feel like I wasted my money!

This is a very beautiful app. The artwork is lovely, and there is so much to enjoy. It runs perfectly on my Kindle Fire.

Really like this app, but I found I have to "force close" the app after each use on my Kindle Fire. The app doesn't shut itself down otherwise, and when I re-open it has issues (doesn't load pictures, reports out of memory, won't clear memory). If I force close the app (tool gear, +, applications, third party, Art Authority, force closed, yes) none of these issues occur.

I enjoy this app very much and can spend hours looking at different artists' bodies of work. No technical problems so far, like forced closing. Everyone should get this app.

Lovely app. Thousands of masterworks beautifully presented - as in a museum. Save favorites to your device gallery. Caution though: takes 138 Mb of internal memory. Also, don't exit app with the back arrow button, or you won't be able to get back into it unless you go to settings and force close. End the app with home button and no problem returning to it. Otherwise, this is a real treasure for Kindle Fire art lovers. I don't think it will work on other tablets, though.
