Art Authority for Macintosh is an art-specific Web-image browser, displaying the world's great art in great ways on your Mac. It is closely related to Art Authority for iPad
. All of these products are based on the more general Envision
Web-image browser for the Macintosh.
Art Authority for Macintosh organizes works of a given artist into "Web shows", which are themselves organized by period. The first time you double-click the Art Authority Macintosh application, it automatically runs a Welcome show. After you close the Welcome show, you're ready to start viewing other Web shows from the thousands available. Once you're watching a show, use the toolbar controls to pause and resume the show; get detailed information about specific images, artists and periods; and much more. That's about all you need to know, but if you want more details, see Watching Shows
