The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) has a new iPad app for the Abstract Expressionist New York exhibition. The MoMA iPad app is not only done well, but it is also FREE. In the app you can see large images of the paintings, learn about the history of the artist and see videos about the artists.
The MoMA ABEX iPad app is a great way to see and experience abstract expressionism. I just wish art history books could be as engaging as this app. Maybe future art students will use apps like these rather than books.
Description from the app store:
