Photographic Service

The photo library of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium manages thousands of high quality images that are available for professionals, researchers and individuals.

Photography plays a fundamental role in the management of a museum collection, especially for works of art. Various types of images are used for research, conservation, restoration or dissemination purposes.

After using Ektachrome type photographs for many years, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts turned, more than ten years ago, to digital technology. Our digital images are produced to international standards, in order to ensure a high level of quality, and reproductions that are as faithful as possible to the original works.

These images are available for different types of commercial or research use, or for private individuals.
