A year ago, the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art embarked on an ambitious project - to fully digitize and make its permanent collection publicly available. A very generous step for the third most visited museum in the world.

Now, if you want to use the images for commercial or artistic purposes, you will not need to worry about copyright infringement — and the Metro collection will have a place for art lovers to roam, because it has more than one and a half million exhibits.

To date, more than 400 thousand works of art in various genres have been digitized. The collection includes antique and modern art, painting and photography, sculpture, historical documents, dresses and even furniture. Users can search for the works they are interested in by the author's name, the time of creation or the materials used.
