Images in the database
New images are being added to the database and made available here at the rate of about 2,000 each week.
Images of some objects have been withheld for copyright reasons.
Artists’ copyright lasts throughout their lifetimes and for 70 years from the date of death. We have made every effort not to infringe copyright, and only to display works in copyright if we have permission from artists or their estates. If we have made a mistake, please tell us and we will remove the image(s) from the site immediately.
Most images are available to order free of charge for non-commercial use through the individual object pages. There is also a facility, on the same pages, to commission new photography or order an image for commercial use, or of a larger file size.
