Today, more than 25,000 images of art and architecture are downloadable on Artsy. If an image on Artsy has a “Download Image” button next to it, this means the image may be downloaded from the Artsy website and used independently for teaching, study and other purposes.

Downloadable images on Artsy are images of artworks that we believe to be in the public domain (i.e. no longer under copyright), or images which have otherwise been made available for use from sources such as the National Gallery of Art (Washington, DC), Wikimedia Commons, and other museums and Artsy partners.

In the “More Info” section for many artworks on Artsy, you will find detailed rights information along with links to the website of the image source. These other websites may provide additional information about the work as well as high-resolution or alternate versions of the images currently displayed on Artsy, and we encourage you to visit them.

If an image on Artsy is not displayed with a “Download Image” button next to it, this is because the image or artwork is still under copyright or otherwise rights-restricted and is available for viewing only within the Artsy website and mobile applications. For more information on downloadable images and how you can use content on Artsy, see our Terms of Use.

If your museum, institution, or foundation would like to share images on Artsy, please contact [email protected].
