(Before It's News)

I love art. I’m not a fancy person by any means, but I love the ability to capture and inspire emotion. As a weird side note, I’m also fascinated with all things miniature. The New York Metropolitan Art Museum just digitized their collection and released it under the Digital Commons.

On February 7, 2017, The Metropolitan Museum of Art implemented a new policy known as Open Access, which makes images of artworks it believes to be in the public domain widely and freely available for unrestricted use, and at no cost, in accordance with the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) designation and the Terms and Conditions of this website.

It also makes available data from the entire online collection―both works it believes to be in the public domain and those under copyright or other restrictions―including basic information such as title, artist, date, medium, and dimensions. This data is available to all in accordance with the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) designation.

Enjoy. Or don’t. I don’t give a shit. I’m getting the above image made into a print on canvas.
