Getty Throws Open the Image Bank


Open Content, An Idea Whose Time Has Come | The Getty Iris The initial focus of the Open Content Program is to make available all images of public domain artworks in the Getty’s collections.
Today we’ve taken a first step toward this goal by making roughly 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose. These are high-resolution, reproduction-quality images with embedded metadata, some over 100 megabytes in size. You can browse all available images here.
