Las imágenes se pueden descargar para cualquier uso, sea comercial o no comercial, lo que esta suponiendo un cambio de paradigma en el funcionamiento de los museos que, de esta manera, se hacen mucho más accesibles, participando en la educación de la gente.

LACMA ( Los Angeles County Museum of Art9

We recently redesigned our website, to incorporate more than 20,000 high quality downloadable images of artworks from our encyclopedic collection which we believe to be in the public domain—available without restriction, free of charge.* From ancient sculpture to Impressionist masters, from scroll paintings to Mesoamerican pottery, we hope these works of art will inform and inspire.
To find downloadable images, visit our collections database. Search by any criteria. On the search results page, at the top right, you will see an option that says "select only results with unrestricted images." Check this box to filter for results for which we offer a high quality downloadable image. Navigate to a particular artwork, and you will see a "download" option immediately below the image that will deliver the image to your desktop.
