Along with other great online resources, MOMA has introduced a new iPAD app, which allows you to view the current “Abstract Expressionist New York” Exhibition currently on view at the museum. Not only can viewers browse high resolution images of all 60 works in the show, but they watch videos and listen to audio guides created by the curators that focus on individual painters and their techniques.
In addition, the Guggenheim has also recently made available 65 art catalogues that can now be found online completely free of charge. The catalogues cover a wide range of artists, including the work of Calder, Van Gogh, Guston, Munch, Bacon, Klimt and Kandinsky. Also featured are titles covering major movements and themes (ex: Abstract Expressionists Imagists, Gauguin and the Decorative Style). To access any of these titles, simply select a text from the collection and click the “Read Catalogue Online” button. The catalogues can also be found on archive.org, which lets you download them as PDFs and other formats.
