The Foundation Collection Online and Copyright
Records and images found in The Foundation Museum Collection are published from The Foundation’s collection database. Updates and additions stemming from research and imaging activities are ongoing and published online regularly.
The Foundation does not hold the copyright to many of the works in its collection, and respects the intellectual property rights held by artists, their estates, and other rights holders. Every effort has been made to accurately determine the rights status of works and their images. For copyrighted works with a known rights holder, a copyright notice is displayed under any available images and as part of the record for the artwork. Sometimes the rights holder for a work cannot be identified or located despite a good-faith diligent search conducted by The Foundation. Such “orphan works” are labeled as “Status undetermined” under any available images and as part of the record for the artwork. For some artworks, copyright research is still incomplete. These works are labeled as “Status unknown, research required.” Please contact The Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have information on the rights status of a work that is contrary or in addition to the information in our records.
Images may be unavailable for a work of art due to contractual reasons, copyright and privacy/publicity restrictions, or because a work has not yet been photographed or is too fragile to be photographed. For records with images, a combination of copyright status and available image quality determines the final image display size on the collection website. The Foundation publishes thumbnail-size images of copyrighted works for which it does not have a license to reproduce under fair use. All available images include embedded metadata, accessible under file properties or file information.
