Exploring works of art has never been this up close and personal. Boulevard AR brings art to you, wherever you are, and now features three important paintings from London’s National Portrait Gallery collection. Representing 20th-century Nobel-Prize winning chemist Dorothy Hodgkin, renowned 19th-century painter and poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti, alongside his friend, the critic and novelist Theodore Watts-Dunton, and lastly Sir Henry Unton, a diplomat and soldier from the Elizabethan era, Boulevard AR’s offerings reveal secrets and tell stories across a 400-year span. Curators from the National Portrait Gallery narrate the immersive experiences and guide users through select aspects, allowing for independent exploration of these fascinating artworks. You can place any of the portraits on a wall, in your own space, and move towards them for close-up looking; tap to activate unique elements in each. Music and layered effects make your augmented reality encounters with history even more meaningful and complete. Bring each of these portraits into your world and see what unfolds. -"Eye of the Beholder” update adds optics theme to the mix. -Simple UI: tap to interact. -User-driven experience: self-guided discovery and interactivity. -8K image: user can get closer than ever possible in a museum! See fine details of brushwork and application of paint. -Boulevard Arts ecosystem provides engaging and entertaining interdisciplinary learning opportunities. -Optimized for iOS 11 with ARKit. *Music credits: Unton: Lachrimae, or Seven Tears - 9.

  • Can’t scan my art at home

    By Gundy Gberger
    I downloaded this app to learn more about the art we have in our home but the only options I seem to have access to are the three works that currently come with the app. Not sure if it’s operator error on my part or if the app’s description was misleading, but I could have bought an ice cream cone for $2.99 instead. 😕
  • Worthless at best

    By TFKIII55
    Content There are 3 subjects to look at and the interface completely disappoints. Not sure what the 5 star ratings were seeing the app is nothing less than a scam. Claims made on the capability’s of the app very overstated or maybe just not obvious. Please save your money
  • Love the new content!

    Creative. Informative. Technologically Epic. There’s no other museum quality AR arts education experience out like this. Digging the new content and looking forward to more. An all around great AR experience and value - treat yo self! 🤘
  • It does nothing

    By crennolds
    The app does nothing. I downloaded and opened it and it had a small multi squared gray box and it said to scan my room, which I did. So I paid $2.99 so I could look at my room through the camera. There was no “art” nothing. Worthless app.
  • Scammy

    Buyers beware, only one painting included & you can’t use your own photos!?!? WTH? Update: Although I do appreciate the developer responding. I still feel we should have the option to use our own images & videos. I’m sure it’s super basic copy paste code as most apps support camera roll. If I had the time I’d learn to make iOS apps myself. But that’s why I pay developers.
  • Don’t waste your money; go buy a latte.

    Truly disappointing app that provides little to no content.
  • Not worth it!

    By knot wurth it
    I’m not sure what exactly this app is charging for that makes it worth the expense I’m unhappy with it and deleted it before i have paid my CC bill. Don’t waste your time!
