[prMac.com] Ashland, Oregon - Art Authority, creators of the award-winning line of classic art-viewing apps for Apple devices, today announced new Valentine's-themed shows for their "Art Channel" on Apple TV. The new "Highest Priced" show lets lovers gift each other paintings worth over two billion dollars, while a new "Valentine's Day Inspirations" show lets them view a selection of classic romantic works. As with all Art Channel shows, HD-quality images enable a museum-like viewing experience. Videos with thematic music are now also included.
Art Channel's "Highest Priced" show includes paintings by Gauguin, Klimt, van Gogh and others that sold for tens of millions of dollars each. Gauguin's "When Will You Marry?" alone reportedly went for $300 million last year. "Valentine's Day Inspirations" includes nearly 500 years of romantic works, starting with masterpieces from Sandro Botticelli.
All Art Channel shows are currently available for free, with future subscription options planned. The combination of an HD TV, Apple TV, Art Channel, and high-resolution images from Art Authority's database of over 100,000 works of art results in an immersive experience which is hard to duplicate in any other environment, for any price. The works literally have to be seen to be believed.
The Art Channel is also more than just a bunch of pretty pictures. Detailed information behind each work of art earned the Art Authority K-12 app designation as one of Apple's five "Real World Learning" selections for 2015, and much of that information is readily available with each work of art on the Art Channel. Additional groundbreaking features from the Art Authority line, such as Art Real Size, Art Like This, and Art Near Me, are also planned for the Art Channel.
Details on the Art Channel app, and the entire Art Authority line, are available on the Art Authority website and blog.
