Our collections - Art Copyright - Can you help?

A catalogue of the fine art collection at Down County Museum is currently being prepared for publication, in November 2011. We need to seek permission from artists, whose work is illustrated, to reproduce images.


At Down County Museum we respect the rights of copyright holders and wish to uphold our reputation for due diligence. However, despite our best efforts, we are struggling to locate some artists, or their copyright holders. There could be a conflict of interest as the museum strives to provide public access to its works but at the same time respect the wishes of the copyright holders. We would regret not having the correct information in what will be a prestigious catalogue.
