The Getty Puts 4,600 Images Into Public Domain

Open Culture reports: [edited]

Getty’s Open Content Program has just made available over 4600 high-resolution images of the museum’s collection freely available in the public domain. You can download them, modify them, distribute them — do what you please with them.

President and CEO James Cuno writes. “The Getty was founded on the conviction that understanding art makes the world a better place, and sharing our digital resources is the natural extension of that belief". Cuno promises many more images to come, and material from other sources like the Getty’s international field projects.
