Love Art is a Pentimento application created by Antenna Audio, the world’s leading producer of mobile interpretation for museums and cultural attractions.
The art term Pentimento refers to layers of alteration that reveal changes in composition and thinking from the artist. It is a lasting trace, often hidden to the eye, of the process and the maker.
What's New in Version 1.7
iPhone OS 3.0 compatibility
In searching for an app/program that may allow students who are visually impaired to learn about art, I found this one mentioned in an article. I immediately purchased it and found that their description of the app
Is far from center. Where are the descriptions of the artwork?
Another issue worth the app is that it continuously crashes. I'd like my $$ back!
Limited Functionality and Coverage
No sound, no depth, categories make it hard to find specific pictures, no written commentary... not worth the money
Great resource for the classroom!
I really like this App! I like how it's so easy to use and will be able to have students use it easily. I visited the National Gallery many years ago and am so happy to be able to revisit the amazing collection and share it with my art students. Thanks!
