How does Art Authority bring this vast world of art to you? We download most of it all from our own servers, where it's been optimized for quality, size and speed. For more recent works still under copyright, Art Authority downloads from an authorized Web site instead. The result: a comprehensive, continual view of western art from its origins through current times.

Ratings and Reviews

Painfully Slow, Glorified slideshow viewer, But Comprehensive

NathanMP

Kind of slow and crappy - each image needs to be individually downloaded. It is basically a slideshow program. You open a folder of URL's which then downloads the files. It is comprehensive so two stars for that. But I expected the execution to be a bit lot zippier. Like a book on art that you could flick through. Not waiting 3-4 seconds for each image. Some images are low resolution. And the download of images seems to stall sometime after a certain number of images.
