An early art exhibition like no other, in your pocket! Art Envi Origins brings Web-based artwork from ancient times through the Middle Ages to your iPhone. It's the origins of the art world as you've never seen them before. And you can add more from there.

From prehistoric cave drawings, carvings and pottery to figures of mythological creatures and heroes of Mesopotamia; from ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman sculpture to statues of early China, India and Japan; from the Byzantine period though Gothic art covering over 11 centuries, Art Envi Origins displays Web-based early art the way you would expect on the iPhone: full screen, with multi-touch controls, in automated slide shows or scrolling image arrays. Hundreds of amazing images reflecting humanity's earliest desire to express itself.

Want more art? You can add our in-depth art collections directly from the app or from the App Store, including Renaissance, Baroque, Impressionist and Modern art as well as various artists. Or check out Art Authority. Art Authority includes 1000+ artists and 40,000+ works, detailed captioning, major works by period, and more. There's even a Mac version.

The app is also more than just a bunch of historic pictures. It includes access to detailed information about the periods, regions and artists.

Please also check out our other Envi apps, all based on the acclaimed iEnvision Web-image browser. Classic and modern art and architecture, hot sports cars, cool haircuts, outer space from planet Earth to the furthest reaches of the Hubble, the great outdoors, and lots of just plain fun. There's an Envi app for that!
