With images from over 8,000 collections and more than 29,000 artists, we represent international museums, galleries and artists by providing a central source of fine art for image users

Founded in 1972, the Bridgeman Art Library works with museums, art galleries and artists to make the best art available for reproduction. The result is an outstanding archive of images drawn from collections throughout the world, all of which are available for licensing.

Every subject, concept, style and medium is represented, from the masterpieces of national museums to the hidden treasures of private collections. Fine art is just one of the sources of images; design, antiques, maps, architecture, furniture, glass, ceramics, anthropological artefacts and many others also feature in the collection.

Images are available in 4 Categories and you may view representative samples of each by clicking on the images below.

However, as a registered user, you can also search by keyword or gallery to explore the entire collection. As well as more comprehensive searching, you will be able to save images to lightboxes, request quotes and place orders. To register now, click here
