The overall collection includes the works of Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Diego Rivera, Willem de Koonig, Edward Hopper, and more, with select pieces available to view in AR. Christie’s deployed AR for the app last year, and since then have made various collections accessible using the AR feature.
To view art from the collection in AR, users navigate to the auction section in the app and select items tagged with an AR icon (an eye with a diamond shape overlapping it). Users then point their devices at a wall and wait for the app to scan and identify a space to place it.
For your enhanced viewing, they invite users to explore artworks from The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller in augmented reality. Simply download Christie’s mobile app on iOS 11 and an iPhone 6s or above, and browse the special lots marked with an augmented reality icon. From the palm of your hand, you can envision artworks in the context of your own home. The cutting-edge technology provides an immersive visual experience and a hyper-real view of every brushstroke and intimate detail of masterpieces offered in our sales.
