The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City announced last week that 375,000 high resolution images of artworks in its collection are now under the Creative Commons Zero license. This means hundreds of thousands of artworks can now be accessed, downloaded, and used, without needing to ask for permission or being afraid of lawsuits.
Now you can download some real art, make it any size you like
with your computer, go get a frame, and hang works from the
masters on your wall for a fraction of the cost of an original.
Some might like to use them for screen savers. You can search or
peruse the collections here. LINK
