Artips is a free daily newsletter focused on art history. Delivered to subscribers’ inbox 3 times a week, Artips tells short and original stories about famous and unknown works of art.
Founded in April 2013, Artips is a start-up founded by two young college graduates, Coline Debayle and Jean Perret. They decided to create a way to address difficulties many individuals face when trying to understand the arts, such as the art world’s complex nature, outdated art history texts and long lines outside major museums across the world.
Artips makes art history more accessible and mobile by offering daily enter- taining and unique stories that take only a minute to read. With its advanced and responsive design, Artips can be read on a smartphone, tablet or computer.
As an Artips subscriber, you will learn the answers to the following questions: Why did Michelangelo sign his Pietà like a thief in the night? Why does the barmaid of Folies- Bergères look so melancholy in Manet’s painting? What were the eerie premonitions of Surrealists like Dali or Brauner? From ancient to contemporary art, Artips allows us to understand works of art from a new angle.
Through the writings of over one hundred specialists, editors, students, art hobbyists and art history teachers, Artips tells a memorable and fun story every day about paintings, sculptures, installations, photography and design.
As of this month, there are over 80,000 francophone subscribers and we have launched our English version earlier this month.
