About Licensing For Reproduction
High-resolution digital image files (FTP transfers/electronic delivery) of objects in the AGO collection from existing photography are available for a fee of $125 each. Additional fees may apply for new photography.
All images requested and purchased through the Art Gallery of Ontario are offered on an individual license basis.
Reproduction Licensing fees vary depending on the nature of your request. When the Art Gallery of Ontario licenses an image, the usage is specified on the reproduction rights form and/or on the subsequent invoice and cannot be used for any other purpose without further agreement by the Art Gallery of Ontario.
You will receive a response in 3 – 5 business days to confirm availability of images and total fees if approved. Once you have accepted the fees, the AGO must receive payment and a signed Reproduction Rights form before digital files are delivered.
For works in copyright, you must obtain all other permissions from copyright owners required for your use of the art object and the digital image, and forward them to Image Resources prior to completion of the transaction. The AGO will not forward an image without proof of 3rd party approval. Additional fees may be requested from the copyright owner. AGO Image Resources will act as the intermediary for some works in the AGO collections and works on loan (details provided at time of request).
Please submit your request for approval by completing the following form.
Please note that the regular turnaround time is up to 3 weeks for existing photography and 6 weeks for new photography. For orders required within one week, a rush order fee of $200 applies.
