Metropolitan Museum of Art Releases Images Online

It was exciting to learn that the Metropolitan Museum of Art has released about 400,000 high resolution images of its art into the public domain. This is for non-commercial purposes, of course, but it is delightful news for bloggers who enjoy including photographs with their post. Henri Matisse and Pierre Bonnard are two of the painters who have influenced my artwork over the years. Many photographs are among these images.

If you love art and like to include images in your posts, please check out The Collection on Line.

Happy Memorial Day!

Cool! It seems like it's getting easier and easier to find good free images. That's a bonus for me, since a lot of my clients require I use only public domain images...I love the Google search feature where I can narrow the search to only images that are free for use.
