From LAist:

Now you can spend the night at the museum any old time you want with LACMA’s collection of unrestricted, public domain, high resolution images. “From ancient sculpture to Impressionist masters, from scroll paintings to Mesoamerican pottery, we hope these works of art will inform and inspire,” says the image library website.

To see even more from LACMA’s collection of 100,000+ objects, the art-obsessed can search the main collection database as well. Photos not listed in the image library may be requested online.

From the Image Bank Web Site:

Here you will find a growing body of high resolution images (between 10–40 MB) from our encyclopedic collection which we believe to be in the public domain—available without restriction, free of charge.* From ancient sculpture to Impressionist masters, from scroll paintings to Mesoamerican pottery, we hope these works of art will inform and inspire.

This image library represents our commitment to making the breadth and depth of the museum’s collection broadly accessible online and to the widest possible audience. LACMA plans to continue adding to this library over time.

The material presented here represents only a limited selection from our vast collection of more than 100,000 objects. To see works of art not represented in the image library, search our main collection database.
