Dashclock's Roman Nurik's gorgeous new app. A live wallpaper, which displays a different work of art every day. The wallpaper is blurred, with a simple double tap on your homescreen you can unblur the pic. Dimness and blur can be adjusted. You can also display your own pics instead of the provided artworks.

An automatic daily wallpaper app brought to you by the developer of DashClock. This one focuses on famous paintings, bringing a new one to you each day. The wallpaper is blurred (you can change it), which gives an interesting and not distracting look to your screen but comes into focus when you long click it. It will also use your photos if you wish it to (in which case it will change your wallpaper periodically through out the day). Well worth a look... Did I mention there is also a 500px plugin for this app?

A simple wallpaper app which changes your wallpaper everyday to a different popular work of art. It blurs the wallpaper to give it a more minimalistic design, but a double tap on any part of the wallpaper and your homescreen will reveal the un-blurred version and another double tap will revert it back (it will also blur itself automatically after a certain amount of time if you are really lazy).
Muzei is a live wallpaper that gently refreshes your home screen each day with famous works of art. It also recedes into the background, blurring and dimming artwork to keep your icons and widgets in the spotlight. Simply double touch the wallpaper or open the Muzei app to enjoy and explore the artwork in its full glory. Alternatively, you can choose your favorite photos from your own gallery or other apps to use on your home screen. To keep your wallpaper fresh, Muzei will rotate through your favorite photos every few hours.
Finally, Muzei is developer-friendly. All the code is available at http://code.muzei.co and Muzei even offers a simple API that allows you to build your own wallpaper source. For API details, visit http://api.muzei.co.
Muzei now includes a watch face for Android Wear, so you can see your latest wallpaper right on your wrist!
Made in New York by Roman Nurik. Muzei is a transliteration of the Russian word музей, which means “museum.”
Featured artwork in Muzei is curated daily by our small staff and made possible thanks to WikiArt.org and its contributors.
Many thanks to Ian Lake for the watch face, and the many other contributors that help make Muzei possible.
