“April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.” - T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land

"No great art has ever been made without the artist having known danger." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

On USEUM you can download more than 20,000 royalty-free images of artworks that you are free to use for any purpose even commercially. You can download an artwork in 2 ways: from a list of artworks, or from the artwork page. Both ways are demonstrated below.

Research has always been a central part of USEUM and the last few months we have been working intensively on the development of an innovative application that has the potential to help museums and galleries address the ever-increasing financial challenges they are facing, whilst enabling the dissemination of art beyond the walls of the museum.

"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show." ~ Andrew Wyeth

Download the Rijksmuseum!

Today we are excited to announce the addition of the Rijksmuseum, the National Museum of the Netherlands dedicated to art and history, to the list of museums from which you can download copyright-free artworks and use them in any way you like!

We are excited to announce the ability to search all copyright-free artworks that you can download from USEUM! Now whenever you start searching, you are presented with the following option to "Search in Free Artworks"! 

The PhD project behind USEUM was completed successfully last Thursday, a milestone that gives us great strength to continue pursuing our mission of making art accessible to all.
