The complimentary version of this app features the following great artists: Bouguereau, Cezanne, Da Vinci, Degas, Gauguin, Homer, Kahlo, Klimt, Marc, Monet, Rembrandt, Rivera, Sargent, Turner, and Van Gogh.
For each one, students can read a biography and view replications and descriptions of the artist's paintings.
A quiz is also included where students guess "Who is the artist?". You can select to have 10, 25, or 50 questions in the quiz.
Please note that some of the paintings feature nude women and men.
This app seems to crash more than others; but it's free so you can't complain too much.
