Users of the Art Authority iPad app will be able to view retina-display quality images from Bridgeman's library and seamlessly order framed or unframed copies of those works. Similar functionality will also be available through a newly created web site. Not only does the partnership provide Art Authority users with the ability to own physical, large-scale reproductions of works they view through the app, but over time will significantly increase their access to great works of art, both in terms of quality and quantity.
