The Getty Museum this week has launched a new Open Content Program which has now made 4,600 high resolution images available for the public to download and enjoy.
Th newly available images from the Getty Museum are free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose, with the initial focus of the Open Content Program to make available all images of public domain artworks in the Getty’s collections.
The Getty Museum explained on their Getty Iris Museum website: ” 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.”
The images available from the Getty Museum are high-resolution, reproduction-quality images with embedded metadata, and some are over 100 megabytes in size. The Getty Museum plans to release many more images of works of art in the public domain over time, both from the Museum’s collection and from the special collections of the Getty Research Institute.
