A month ago we posted about the National Gallery of Art in D.C. making all of the images in their web-based database open access.
From the Announcement:
As a pilot, 159 highlights from our collections are available for free download. The art works are also featured in the Google Art Project.
How can you use the 159 art works?
All artworks are outside copyright, and we therefore allow you to:
Share the images – copy, distribute, and transmit them
Remix the images – adapt and reuse them in new contexts
Use the images for any purpose – for instance teaching, research, presentations, publications, film productions m.m., also for commercial purposes on the single condition that you attribute National Gallery of Denmark as the source of the image.
