Creative Commons: downloadable artworks

The National Gallery of Ireland  announce that they have made 1000 high resolution images of artworks from their collection available to download under an Open Data Initiative.
The main objective of this initiative is to provide a broad audience with the chance to engage freely with our collection, and to enable use of high resolution collection images under a free and open licensing platform.

What does this mean?

This means that you can download - for free and without seeking permission from the Gallery - any image of an artwork that is labelled as being available under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International. You are free to share the images (i.e. copy and redistribute them in any medium or format) and free to adapt them (remix, transform, and build upon them for any purpose, even commercial purposes!).
