The Bridgeman archive offers a comprehensive collection of high resolution old masters, contemporary art, photography, textiles and illustrations for book projects. We deliver high quality imagery in a range of formats to suit your needs. If your project demands a scan that is larger than our standard specifications, our scanning department will produce a scan based on your requirements, including isolating details within a larger image to ensure the highest quality output. Bulk rates and volume discounts are available. Bridgeman's art history trained researchers will work with you to source those hard to find images and provide a full range of copyright advice and clearance.
