Image Request Form

The Metropolitan Museum of Art provides license- and cost-free access to many images on its website for personal enjoyment, study, and educational purposes according to the Terms and Conditions of this website. The Museum also provides license- and cost-free access to images of artwork in the collection for scholarly purposes via Open Access for Scholarly Content (OASC). The Image Request Form below should only be used for requesting Museum images for commercial uses, or if the desired images are not available on the Museum’s website and/or fall outside the scope of OASC.

All requests submitted via this form are directed to Art Resource, the Museum’s primary agent for the worldwide distribution and fulfillment of licensing requests. Please note that submission of a request does not guarantee fulfillment. Images are not available for all Museum objects and not all objects are available in all image formats. A fee may be charged depending on (1) the nature and type of the proposed use and (2) the availability of photography of the images requested. All requests for new scanning or new photography are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Upon approval, additional fees will apply. New photography will require a minimum of six weeks.

All fees directly support the Museum's activities.
