About. Arthistoryreference is a tile-based App generated by Charlie's App Creator (CAC), a Pinterest-like App builder. To build an App, the CAC user downloads (or "pins" in Pinterst terms) tiles from the internet or a computer, where each tile contains an image and text. The user then specifies relationships among the downloaded tiles, and CAC generates an App where the tiles can be accessed and traversed via these relationships.
 In this art history App, tiles represent, for example, Artists, Paintings, and People. The tiles at Venus and Cupid show that the painting was painted by Thomas Bosschaert, that it is in the larger painting Brussels Picure Gallery and that it contains the mythological characters Venus and Cupid.
