Public Domain Artworks at LACMA

31786838.jpgThe Los Angeles County Museum of Art  now has nearly 20,000 high resolution images of public domain artworks in its collection available for download at their collections website.  

"Why would a museum give away images of its art? As Michael Govan often says, "it's because our mission is to care for and share those works of art with the broadest possible public. The logical, radical extension of that is to open up our treasure trove of images."  

Utagawa Hiroshige (Japan, Edo, 1797-1858)
