With more than 3,100 paintings, 660 sculptures, over 5,000 photographs and over 100,000 drawings and prints, the Städel collection provides a rich survey of 700 years of European art – spanning the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Baroque, Classical Modernism and art of the present.
The Städel Museum has now made more than 22,000 works in its Digital Collection available for free downloading under the Creative Commons licence CC BY-SA 4.0. This licence enables anyone interested in art to reproduce and share the images of artworks in the public domain, as well as to use and process them for any purpose, provided the Städel Museum is identified in a credit line. Popular works in the Städel collection are thus available for free downloading by way of the Digital Collection. Entirely in keeping with the wishes of the museum’s founder, the aim of this new service is to make the Städel collection available to the public and further the public enjoyment of common cultural assets.
