How to buy a high-resolution file automatic translate
We are treated with this question very often, but, unfortunately, we do not have files suitable for use in printing. All that is available is available on the website. Sources of many files in our collections are shot on a regular camera, so if you need to print a high-quality reproduction, you will need files of a completely different level of detail.
Images of paintings in high resolution, suitable for printing, can be found in large photobanks:
- Reunion des musees nationaux (RMN)
- Erich Lessing Culture and Fine Arts Archive
- The Scala Picture Library
- Bridgeman Art Library
- Art Resource
- Bildagentur fur Kunst, Kultur und Geschichte (BPK)
Collections of painting of these photobanks, in aggregate, significantly (at times) outperform the collection of Gallerix.ru. If you found something on this site - with a high probability, you can find this picture in high resolution in one of the above photobanks, and maybe in all.
If the picture is in a large museum in Russia, Belarus or Ukraine, it is often easier to contact the museum directly. As a rule, large museums have the most high-quality shooting of their collections and will be able to help you. In addition, buying a file directly in the museum is more likely to cost you less than buying the same file in a photobank.
If the picture is in the museum funds of the Russian Federation and you plan to replicate polygraphic or souvenir products with the use of its reproduction, then you should know that the « Museum Funds Act » (see Article 36) operates in Russia, which mentions the right of the first publication and the need to obtain permission for such replication from the museum, which is the original. However, in respect of works of art, from the death of the author of which passed 70 years or more, the article 1282 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation «Transfer of the work into the public domain» is in force.
What to do if the picture could not be found in the right resolution anywhere, even in photo-drains? Today’s technology allows you to get a very high-quality image with a good camera, removing it from hand in the museum. Of course, in this way, without training, you will not get a file similar in quality to stock, but getting 3000-4000 on the larger side is quite possible. Brief instructions are here .
