Exploring Art With Art Authority
Art Authority & Charles H. Whitaker
This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iPad, and with iTunes on your computer. Multi-touch books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iPad. Books with interactive features may work best on an iPad.
The Art Authority app series provides you with a fun, yet powerful, means of exploring the world of art and art history. This book is a companion to using Art Authority. We describe the major periods and movements that the apps cover, and show a few works from each period. As you read this book, you can see the progression of style and subject matter through the millennia, and get a sense of the vastness of art history. If you find a period, movement or artist that catches your imagination, you can explore in much greater depth with the Art Authority app series; or, if while using an Art Authority app, you want a broader, alternate view of an artist or period, you can jump back to this book.
Specifics of the apps are covered in the last chapter.
What's New in Version 1.2
Updated to talk about new apps in the Art Authority series: Art Authority K12 and Art Alert. Also the new community.artauthority.net site.
The app is one of my top five iPad apps and I have hundreds of them.
The free book enhances the app experience ... significantly.
