Frames make beautiful art even more beautiful. Indeed, framing is itself an art form.
We here at Art Authority have been working with renowned framing authority Eli Wilner & Company to adapt their frames for use throughout the Art Authority museum.
Eli Wilner & Co. have designed a specific frame for each of our museum’s eight period rooms, and these frames are now available in the latest upgrade to Art Authority for iPad, version 4.10.2.
From the basic beauty of Early art, to the elegance of the Baroque, to the desire of Romanticism and the statements of Modern and Contemporary, we think Wilner frames are the perfect finishing touch to the paintings by over 1500 of the world’s greatest artists.
We look forward to additional work with Eli Wilner & Co. in the months ahead.
As the seasons move from spring to summer, so too with Art Channel for Apple TV. Our newest show, for the upcoming summer solstice, is “Sunrise, Sunset.” It joins our “Spring Landscapes,” “May Day” and “Mother’s Day Cassatts” seasonal shows.
Following Landscapes for Spring in April, the month of May brings three new shows to our Art Channel on Apple TV.
First, a short show celebrating May Day, the first of May.
Second, an in-depth homage to mothers and Mother’s Day through the work of Impressionist Mary Cassatt. Few, if any, have portrayed the bond between mother and child better.
Third, a show focusing on the work of Sandro Botticelli, whose classic work “Primavera (Allegory of Spring)” brings us back full circle.
We’re pleased to announce our newest show on the Art Channel for Apple TV: “Landscapes for Spring.” Landscapes fit particularly well on HD TV’s and we’ve got over 50 of the best of them. Shining particularly brightly are the beauty and power of Frederic Church’s Heart of the Andes and Twilight in the Wilderness.
Happy Spring, and Happy Easter!
We’re happy to announce the next show on our Apple TV Art Channel. “Easter Story” joins our recently announced “Valentine’s Day Inspirations” and “Highest Priced” shows, along with older favorites like “All-time Highlights” and a great selection of period shows. “Easter Story” includes almost 700 years worth of paintings from Botticelli, Fra Angelico and of course Da Vinci’s Last Supper. Plus much more.
We’re also pleased to announce that monthly subscriptions are now available to the Art Channel, which give you access to art well beyond what’s in the free and preview shows available for everyone. And videos. Even better, subscriptions are only 99 cents per month, and there’s a 7-day free trial. So we’re hoping you’ll sign up today.
We are pleased to announce Art Authority for iPad version 4.10.1. Here’s what’s new:
- Increased resolution for iPad Pro. If you have an iPad Pro, check out in particular the thumbnail arrays.
- Spotlight search now includes titles of previously-viewed works. Once you’ve viewed a work in the app, any Spotlight search you do (from the iPad’s home screen) will include that work’s title in the list, letting you jump directly to that work in the app. You can also search by artist, location and period.
- Many additional works (now 100,000+), artists (1500+), and locations (900+). Thanks especially to our interns here. New artists have been added based on our ongoing study of the Western world’s most significant ones.
- New subject: Shakespeare. Being based in Ashland, Oregon, home of the world-renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival, it was about time we did this!
Art Authority for iPad 4.10.1 is a free update, available from the App Store today.
We’ve added an “Impressionism Favorites” show to our newly-introduced Art Channel app for the new Apple TV. Twenty-five of the best-loved works from one of the best-loved art movements. Not just one but two of Van Gogh’s Starry Night. And his Sunflowers and Irises as well. Classics from Monet, Renoir, Degas and others. All hanging on your wall courtesy of Apple TV and the Art Channel. Impressive.
We’ve also added preview shows from six other periods, to whet your appetite for things to come. As they say, stay tuned!
