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.

Ratings and Reviews
I bought this app expecting it to be a replacement for the audio guide like the "Gauguin Maker of Myths" app for the Tate Modern.
Unfortunately it gives very little information except on a handful of paintings.
I really don't think the content is worth the price of the app. I wish I'd read the reviews before purchasing it!
Thought this app would bring the functionality of the gallery website to the iphone. It doesn't. 'zoomable images' only applies to 12 paintings. The rest of the 250 works 'featured' are non zoomable images that you could probably find online elsewhere.
What an opportunity missed
I am an app developer and cannot believe what a missed opportunity this is. As a regular visitor to the gallery I do not feel this app even scratched the service. If I had never been to NG I would not go after trying this app. Can you get refunds for apps??
