Did you know that you can download high-resolution images from the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam? Search for public domain images using the top right search button.

High quality public domain images
Most of the images are public domain, meaning that you can freely use them in your artwork. Images that are copyright protected can't be downloaded and a little message box will appear. This is excellent because we can be sure that anything else we download, we are allowed to use. Even for commercial work. For example, below is an image of a digital collage I made, using an antique illustration of an elephant. The fish in the mixed media collage below was also sourced from the Rijksmuseum.
