I don't have an ipad so I don't have anything to say about that. I have a kindle fire, and I LOVE this download! 422 color paintings? They look fine on the kindle, and it really gives you a great range of his work that you won't find in any book. A wonderful visual history, no text necessary. It's like a really good catalog, rather than a coffee table book. So many times I get an art book that I'd rather replace excess text with more images. With this price, how can you go wrong? I love being able to just flip through them. With the kindle app, you can flip through them on your smartphone. You can always spend a lot of money for a fabulous book with interesting history tidbits, and this is not to say this kindle gallery replaces that, it's just different.
