Many artistic works are protected by copyright. Depending on your use of the work, you may be required to obtain permission to use the work in your research. For example, if you need to use a high-quality image of the work in a paper, you will need to reach out to the artist, artist's estate, or copyright owner to obtain permission. Due diligence, as well as credit and/or a citation, is always required to lower the risk of copyright infringement. To learn more about this, please visit the Association of Art Museum Directors Guidelines For The Use Of Copyrighted Materials And Works Of Art By Museums linked below or visit our Copyright Basics Guide.
