Timeline -Art Museum 4/25/13

Timeline –Art Museum starts in the 13th century with Giotto and ends with Basquiat in the 20th century. Eighty painters are included in this app. Five paintings are featured for each artist in this app. A short biography of each artist appears on the timeline, and when you investigate the works of an artist each piece includes detailed information. (Style, date, technique, material, dimensions, genre) In app purchases, $0.99 each, give you the option to purchase a comprehensive collection in HD for each artist. There are a few complaints in the reviews about in-app purchases, so be cautious.

Not a surprise, very few female painters are listed: O’Keeffe, Cassatt, Morisot are the only three. Timeline –Art Museum, is an ideal app for Art History, or Social Studies. It’s an ideal resource for an assignment such as “Write a Resume: Get to Know a Historical Figure”. (The full "Resume" lesson costs $2.75 through Teachers Pay Teachers, but the title alone is a great lesson starter.)
