It happens to many of us. When we visit a museum, we can hardly identify any works of art, let alone their history, apart from the most famous paintings and sculptures... and sometimes we're not even capable of recognizing the most famous ones, to be honest. But we can now download Smartify which can help us to know about absolutely anything in the world of art.
Observe painting with this pocket guide
This app offers us the chance to use our device's camera to scan paintings and immediately return results with the identification of the artwork and other information such as its author, age to which it belongs, an artistic analysis and links to additional information and sites of the likes of Wikipedia. Furthermore, it also has a huge database full of painters and their works, therefore, if you want to learn more about a certain artist, you can do so easily.
These are the main features offered by this app:
- Access comments and audios whenever available.
- Save scanned works of art in your history.
- Create a user profile to store your activity data.
- Find nearby museums where you can use the app.
