In accordance with the 2021 amendment to the Austrian Copyright Act, photographs that reproduce works of fine art whose terms of copyright protection have expired are not subject to photographic copyright protection.

The publication of reproduction files (up to 300 dpi, ca. A7 format) showing works not under copyright from the ALBERTINA’s collections is hence made possible by the ALBERTINA free of charge. Permission from the ALBERTINA is not necessary. Please use the free download function included in the Collections Online section of our website.


For images of

  • works not subject to copyright at high resolutions (more than 300 dpi, ca. A5 format)
  • permanent loans
  • works subject to copyright protection, or
  • three-dimensional works

please contact our Reproduction Department. Downloading such images for free via Collections Online is not possible.

All new reproductions are produced as digital images.

For a fee, the ALBERTINA will make available

  • digital images of more than 300 dpi (ca. A5 format)
  • photographs (black and white, color) based on existing digital files, or
  • photographs (black and white) made from existing negatives

of works from the collections of the ALBERTINA MUSEUM (Drawings & Prints, Paintings & Sculpture, Photography, Architecture).

New photographs are produced as digital images.

Reproduction files of works under copyright and three-dimensional works are subject to copyright protection. For every use, publication, and/or transfer to third parties, permission from the ALBERTINA is required. In addition to a fee to cover the cost of file preparation, a royalty may likewise be charged. The amount of the royalty depends on the purpose of use, the type of publication, edition size / circulation, number of languages, area of distribution, and other factors. Payment of such royalties shall not affect the intellectual property rights of artists and/or their legal successors.


Please e-mail your inquiries including information on the orderer, the work, the desired image material, and purpose of use to the Reproduction Department. Once we have processed your inquiry, you will receive an offer including conditions and a calculation of the costs.
