The Metropolitan Museum of Art has collaborated with ARTstor to make more than 1,000 additional images available in the Images for Academic Publishing (IAP) program. The release includes images of works by artists such as Degas, Delacroix, Gauguin, Goya, Ingres, John Singer Sargent, Seurat, and Tiepolo, as well as functional and decorative objects from regions including China, Egypt, Greece, the Netherlands, Spain, and more. This brings the current total of available images from the Museum’s collection to approximately 7,800 images. The Metropolitan Museum also contributes nearly 6,000 of American and European costumes and accessories formerly in the Brooklyn Museum to the IAP program.
The IAP program is intended to offload the costs of museums delivering high-resolution image files to scholars for academic publications, and to foster scholarly publication in the history of art by providing these high-quality TIFF image files free-of-charge to both ARTstor subscribers and non-subscribers alike.

In addition to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, IAP’s founding partner, ARTstor is currently collaborating with eight other contributors: the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, Princeton University Art Museum, Northwestern University Library, and University of California, Irvine, Bryn Mawr College, the Getty Research Institute, and the Walters Art Museum.
