App Identifies Art Like Shazam

September 17, 2019

When you hear a song you like that you can’t quite place Shazam has become many people’s solution to the problem. All you have to do it open the app, let it listen to the tune for a few seconds, and more often than not you’ll be presented with the title and artist in just a few seconds. Now that same model has been developed to identify art! Magnus is the app that can figure out who the artist is for a piece of art you see. Open the app, allow it to access your camera and within a few seconds, Magnus will be able to identify the art, tell you its name, who created it and how much is sold for. The app shows you both historic and recent prices from both auctions and gallery sales, so you can get a decent idea quickly how an artist’s popularity has risen (or fallen) over the years. If you find yourself a fan o a particular artist, the app will seek out other galleries that contain art from that person. The app also helps you find art and offers information about galleries and museums near you as well as what their current shows are and hours. Magnus is free for Apple and Android devices.
