Carnegie Museum of Art is pleased to offer digital images from our collection and archives for scholarly and commercial uses, as well as reproductions of select artworks, including photographs from the Charles “Teenie” Harris Archive, for personal use.
Licensing Images from Our Collection
To request an image for your publication, product, or presentation, please fill out our easy image request form. We strongly recommend that you submit your licensing requests at least eight weeks prior to the date each image is needed, to ensure adequate processing time. Additional time may be required if an object requires new photography.
We operate on a sliding scale for licensing fees and want to work with you to find a fair and reasonable cost. We believe in being a good partner to all who use our images and prints.
Although the museum may own an artwork, the artist or their estate may be represented by an entity that specifically oversees the artist’s copyright. If an image is presumed to be under copyright or if rights are managed by Artist Rights Society (ARS), you should first obtain copyright clearance before asking us to license an image.

Fees for Use
All other uses will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Permissions are granted for nonexclusive, one-time usage only, in one publication, and one edition. Additional reprints, subsequent editions, or additional use of any kind requires an additional application.
Non-profit fees apply to personal or academic use or use by an educational organization such as a school, university, museum, library, or other non-profit, tax-exempt [501(c)(3)] organization. Commercial fees apply to any individuals, institutions, or companies intending to use the photographic materials for profit. Please note that total fees for photographic materials are comprised of both the digital materials fee plus the usage fee per image. Low-resolution digital images may be available for research only. All fees are determined by Carnegie Museum of Art on a case-by-case basis.
Carnegie Museum of Art cannot guarantee the availability of high-res images for all works in the collection. In some instances, new photography may be needed for the requested materials. Additional photography fees will apply, and scheduling of the new photography will be at the convenience of the museum and the photographer.
An additional $100 fee will be applied to orders needed within two weeks. Rush service is not available on orders that require new photography.
Custom Prints for Personal Use
With our custom prints service, you can order archival quality prints from our collection. Please note, orders must be placed through our custom prints store and should not be submitted via the image request form.
