The Bridgeman Art Library works with museums, art galleries and artists to make the best art available for reproduction. The result is an outstanding archive of images drawn from collections throughout the world. Every subject, concept, style and medium is represented, from the masterpieces of national museums to the hidden treasures of private collections. Fine art is just one of the sources of images; design, antiques, maps, architecture, furniture, glass, ceramics, anthropological artifacts and many others also feature in the collection.
A virtual museum and searchable database of European painting and sculpture from 12th to mid-19th centuries, this site intended to be a free resource of art history primarily for students and teachers.
