Open Access at the National Gallery of Art
The National Gallery of Art has an open access policy for images of works of art in the Gallery's permanent collection which the Gallery believes to be in the public domain. Images of these works are available free of charge for any use, whether commercial or non-commercial.
The NGA Images website, first launched in 2012, has now been retired. Open Access image downloads are now available directly from the object pages located on this website. Over 50,000 images are available for download, and we will continue to add more images for free access as more works are photographed and as works of art enter the public domain. Look for the download icon when browsing the collection, or use the search tools to locate Open Access images.
