THE ART GENOME PROJECT®
Discover and learn about new art and artists you'll love through Artsy's The Art Genome Project, an ongoing study to map the characteristics (known as ‘genes’) that connect the world’s artists and artworks. There are over 500 genes including art-historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities. For instance, Artsy might connect Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst via pop culture, and Botticelli and Ai Weiwei via metaphor/allegory.

What's New in Version 2.0.1
Thanks for all of your great feedback about our last release. In this update, we've fixed a few bothersome bugs:
• Fixed a bug asking users to login again when the app was opened. Once you update the app (and login once more) this should no longer happen.
• Better experience with fair content in the app
• Better signup experience within the app
• Better artwork zoom-in experience on iPad in landscape mode
As a reminder, here are the main updates from last time:
ARTSY FOR IPAD
iPads! They look like an iPhone, but with a much bigger screen. Relied on by tech savvy art lovers, iPads let you experience visual arts on the go, but with more detail than an iPhone. The best thing is, Artsy for iOS is now available for iPad! In case it's not crystal clear, we're very excited to bring the Artsy experience on your iPad.
View artworks in stunning detail on your iPhone & iPad, making individual brushstrokes visible to the naked eye. You can examine every facet of a work, from anywhere, adding a new dimension to your Artsy experience.
VIEW IN ROOM
Activate this feature on your iPhone by simply turning it sideways. Artworks will automatically render, at true scale, in a gallery setting. Art collectors and enthusiasts can see how a work would appear on a wall across the room.
Version 2.0 also includes several general enhancements:
• Usability and stability improvements
• Design and layout enhancements, especially while browsing works
• Fixes for known bugs, bringing us a few steps closer to perfection
Thanks for helping us make Artsy for iOS better with each new release! Please keep your comments and ideas coming. You can reach Artsy's mobile team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy the weather, and the art!
Lame content and never keeps u logged in
Every time I open the app it says create account or log in again through face book- I don't want to do that every time I open this app.
The artwork is not interesting, is not representative of the art world currently and half of the photos of the works are poor image quality, like from Google images.
Never "connects" to Internet
The one and only message I get consistently is that Artsy cannot connect to the Internet. No way that resolve it. Besides, it is a false message anyway.
Useful and beautiful, perfect for the art lover.
