I discovered an exciting bit of news today!  In an effort to encourage the free exchange of works of art, The Getty has placed online over 4,600 high resolution images of artwork in the museum’s collection as part of their Open Content Program.  As long as they are properly attributed (see below), the images are available for anyone to use, publish or modify for any purpose.   The collection currently contains a wide range of media, everything from paintings to manuscripts to sculpture, including these amazing pictures taken by Walker Evans in New York City during the 1920s and 1930s.

 Find more information about Open Content at The Getty here and here.

Search the Open Content images yourself here.

Last but not least, you can see an earlier post about Walker Evans here.
