Awesome app for art historians
I’m working towards my masters in art history and I adore this app. I’ll be sending it along to my instructors and classmates for sure. Would be great if you could sort the giant page of works you can go to by category, e.g., if I want to sort all the abstract art by date, artist name, or the name of the work.

Thank you MargauxVei, I'm so glad you find it useful!
As for the sorting: try combining various filters, like pick Abstract in genre and add a specific Artist (like, Kandinsky) - in other words, you may use all combinations of filters all together (style, genre, school, and artist).
We have noted your request to add the ability to filter/sort out by dates and name of the pictures: will work on it, thank you!
too limited :^(
the app itself is great, but what a non-subscriber is given access to is far too limited. there should be a better balance between what anyone could access, and what is specifically only for those who pay for the subscription. in addition, i wish the articles (at least the available ones) would go a little bit more in depth on the artwork/historical context they discuss. it’s hard to see why i would have a meaningful experience on the app as opposed to using a resource like smarthistory, which is entirely free.
however, i do recognize that the app developer just wants to be compensated for their efforts — i just don’t see myself personally feeling the need to spend money for a potentially better experience.

Dear reneelix, thank you for your valuable input - taken on board!
Since we have just recently launched as an app, we are in the constant process of tuning the whole experience for all tiers of our users (subs and non-subs). Moreover, new features (incl. content-wise) are added with every release, so, I hope, the app becomes more and more satisfying for all art lovers.
A wonderful way to learn more about art history
Thank you so much for this app! I have no suggestions it is perfect.
