Overview

This application is recommended for ages 12+.

Have you always wanted to know the name of that famous painting you have seen a thousand times? Have you wondered which artist painted The Nightwatch?

Our app features over 100 works of art from over 100 artists and has 5 modes of learning about each piece. You can learn by artist, by painting or take a quiz about each. You can also try out game mode which randomly asks artists and painting names and scores you on how quick you answer.

Some of the artists featured are:

Michelangelo
Leonardo da Vinci
Rembrandt
Monet
Cezanne
Francisco de Goya
Turner
Manet
Winslow Homer
Botticelli
Titian
Hakusai

Gallery mode now allows you to view paintings in high resolution by tapping the image and panning. Simply tap the image again to return to gallery.

We are confident that the learning engine will dramatically increase how much of the information you retain. In Learning Mode, you will be asked about a work with just the right frequency to remember it easily and it will be removed from your Learning Deck once you know it. The app preserves your progress so you can always come back and pick up where you left off.

It also features a browse mode so that you can thumb through the works without being quizzed.

It is a little like taking an art history class on your Nook tablet. You have the opportunity to memorize paintings and their authors. The paintings include the name, a reasonable photo of the painting, the artist and the year(s) it was painted. I find myself wanting to go the the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art. Will the author of this app take some feedback? Please produce another version, or six. I really like the app, and so do my family members. Thank you. Great work!

This app works well but I've noticed at least a few errors of incorrect dates. One example is Mary Cassatt's painting dated c 1435 and she was alive several hundred years later in the 1800's.

First I thougt what a good idea to refresh my art history knowledge. But if the author of this app cant even get the dates right like Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres lived from 1780-1867 and could not have done the painting in "1435". Then what is the use... how many more mistakes are there?

THIS BOOK WAS A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY! It isn't even worth more comment.
