Before that, we also wit­nessed oth­er major art muse­ums launch­ing their own open art ini­tia­tives: 87,000 images from the Get­ty in L.A., 125,000 Dutch mas­ter­pieces from the Rijksmu­se­um in the Nether­lands35,000 artis­tic images from the Nation­al Gallery in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., and 57,000 works of art put on vir­tu­al dis­play by Google Art Project

Now comes anoth­er 30,000 images from the Muse­um of New Zealand. On their blog, they write: “Today we are extreme­ly hap­py to let you know about our lat­est devel­op­ment; over 30,000 images down­load­able, for free, in the high­est res­o­lu­tion we have them.” “Over 14,000 images are avail­able under a Cre­ative Com­mons licence CC BY-NC-ND,” (which means you can make non-com­mer­cial use of these images, so long as you give attri­bu­tion to the artist.) “But even bet­ter are the 17,000 images that are down­load­able for any use, any use at all. These images have no known copy­right restric­tions.” Find more infor­ma­tion on this open art ini­tia­tive here. Or enter the col­lec­tions right here.

Up top, you will find the pho­to­graph called “Cleopa­tra in Domain Crick­et Ground,” tak­en in Auck­land, by Robert Wal­rond, in 1914.

The sec­ond image is from a series called “Five cats,” made in Chi­na dur­ing the late 18th cen­tu­ry, by an unknown artist.
