The Rijksmuseum shares copyright-free images

Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum Museum has made its collection available as digital images for free online. You can download high-resolution files and use them however you want. All you have to do is set up an account with your email and a password. 

Famous for its Rembrandts, the museum has about two thousand works from the Dutch Golden Age, including by Frans Hals, Jacob van Ruisdael, Johannes Vermeer, Jan Steen, and the students of Rembrandt.

Love the subtly muted colors of the building scene. I need to practice with a limited palette. Thanks for posting this. There are such beautiful artwork pieces to view here.

Hi James
Thank you for all of this information for finding art online.
I just watched your limited palette video and have purchased several others. I've had your book Color and light for years. I was wondering if you have considered having a blog where you show all or your plein air paintings in one place, similar to what Nathan Fowkes has. Also, a book with all of your plein air pieces would be wonderful as well. Just a thought. Your work and videos are always inspiring.
