Like water for the desert, New Media for New Mexico

Rijksmuseum has lots of free art!

RP-P-OB-21.372

 

Wisely, the Dutch museum has offered its collection on-line, downloadable!
Museums are the repositories of our cultural memory- The works over a certain age must be available free of ©.
As one might expect, the progressive Dutch have taken the lead on this…
(de Ruyter is dancing in heaven, as he once did on the “Dutch” Channel)

Hopefully more contemporary artists will post Hi-Rez versions of their work (Bill Viola, Rackstraw Downes: are you listening?) to at least look at on-line…

  2. What is so awesome about this collection is you can dig deeper into artists works- the sketches and cartoons that were made into great paintings…
