Read the full changelog
You don’t need an art degree to appreciate great paintings, sculptures and architectural wonders, but seeing them in person is not always an option. Thankfully, you can still learn everything about them without even leaving home.
Placing an extensive database of artworks at your fingertips, City Art Search makes it remarkably simple to find whatever you are interested in, get detailed information about famous artists’ works and even download high-resolution images that can be set as your lock screen background.
Browse through an impressive database using an intuitive set of tools
When you launch the application for the first time, you will be presented with an interactive map and some filter suggestions to get started. If you already know what you are looking for, however, just start typing and select the best result from the right-hand panel.
City Art Search lets you filter the database using numerous parameters, such as artist, nationality, city, gallery, movement, tags and so on. Even if you know very little about art, you should have no problem finding that you are interested in.
View high-quality images and detailed descriptions
Once you have found an artwork, whether it is a painting, sculpture or structure, the application will provide you with a high-resolution image and description from Wikimedia. For some works, their scale is also indicated in the bottom-right corner.
You can download images, as well as add any item to your list of favorites. If you are planning a trip and want to make sure you don’t forget about an interesting artwork, this feature can prove very helpful.
Set up slideshows and use images as your lock screen background
After getting search results based on the provided parameters, you can have the application start a slideshow, letting you admire the works in fullscreen mode, with a customizable slide duration.
What’s more, images from your favorites or search results, as well as random selections, can be used as your lock screen background. The refresh interval can be set to values between 15 minutes and 24 hours.
Overall, City Art Search is a well-designed application for desktop and mobile devices that enables you to explore an extensive collection of artworks from the comfort of your home. It features a very intuitive user interface, and it also allows you to personalize the appearance of the Windows lock screen.
