This app offers you two options: Either you let every day automatically display a different image of an artwork to display as wallpaper and lockscreen background or you choose images from your own gallery that change after a predefined time! P.S.: A blur-effect is also on board! Also optimized for tablets and Android Wear!

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.

Must have. Rotate your wallpaper at a set interval with pictures from the most common sources, and can also blur and dim it for you. Just search for muzei on the play store to get other sources. Apart from the common picture sources I recommend getting MultiMuze which make it possible to cycle through your sources automatically.
floydpambrose: I had played with Auto-wallpaper for reddit on my Bionic and Moto X and Wallpaper Changer and Image2Wallpaper in combo for my N10, as I have a bunch of my own I enjoy using. Muzei has overtaken both mainly due to beautiful animations, UI, and extensions. This is the way apps should be developed. It exploded in a matter of days. My most-loved extensions are the music/album art association and the reddit extension that allows selection of subreddits to source from. I still haven't found a way to source wallpapers from a folder though, other than add every singe one individually. I like using my own on my N10, so I will actively be searching for a solution for this. Edit: So, I just found that Wallpaper Changer is supported as a Muzei extension. Life complete.

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?
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.
