The Bridgeman Art Library

http://www.bridgeman.co.uk/

The Bridgeman Art Library is the world's leading source of fine art images. Founded by Viscountess Bridgeman in 1972, the archive has grown to provide a comprehensive record of every aspect of human existence in the last two thousant years. Images range from the earliest cave painting to the iconic masterpieces of the Renaissance, and on to contemporary art and design. Collections represented include such renowned names as the British Library, the National Galleries of Scotland, Sweden and South Africa, and the National Galleries of France and Italy. The Library also represents major auction houses including Christies's Bonham's, Phillips Fine Art Auctioneers, Dreweatt-Neate and Agra Arts in Warsaw. Hundreds of new images are catalogued every week and further images are available through the Library's global network of agencies. To make the licensing process easier still, the Library acts as copyright agent to a growing number of artists and artists' estates. Picture users can view images and order online from the Library's website catalogue at www.bridgeman.co.uk. Full registration is free and enables users to browse using an advanced search system, create image portfolios and see larger images for reference. Expert Picture Researchers, all art historians, in the London, New York, and Paris offices can provide a personal research service.
