Image Services & Rights
Images from the collections of The Baltimore Museum of Art are available for research and publication. Permission for use of the BMA’s images can be requested through the Image Services and Rights Department.
How do I begin?
All requests for images and permissions to publish should be submitted in writing to the Image Services and Rights Assistant by mail, fax, or email. Please describe the image you are requesting by name and artist and accession number (if known), and the format in which you wish to receive the image: high resolution digital image, 4 x 5 inch color transparency, or black white print. Low resolution digital files are available for study purposes only.
In addition, please provide specific information about the purposes for which the image will be used: study, educational presentations, print and electronic publications, commercial products, and media projects. For publications, please specify where the image will appear, author and title, publisher, print run, languages, and distribution.
What happens next?
Prepayment is requested and is payable by check, credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express) or bank transfer. Upon receipt of payment and signed contract, the Image Services and Rights Assistant will send the photographic materials.
How long will it take?
Orders are generally filled in approximately twelve weeks or less from the initial request.
Are photographs of the entire BMA collection available for purchase?
A significant portion of the BMA’s collection is photographed; however, there are times when images are not readily available. In these cases, you will be notified and provided with the date by which the photography will be completed. The BMA reserves the right to cancel requests for new photography but an appropriate explanation and full refund will be given. Due to renovations, only a limited number of new photography requests can be accommodated at this time.
