Ordering photographic material

We are happy to make photographic reproductions of our works available to private individuals, public institutions and businesses. We have made a number of main highlights from the exhibition available as high-resolution files; you can find them here..

If you want even higher resolution images than the ones provided here, or if you wish to receive images of other works from our collection, please contact the museum – we will be happy to send you the desired files. In the unlikely event that we do not have photographic reproductions of the desired work(s) available, or if you have special wishes for photographs of specific details or similar, it is possible to arrange for new photographs to be taken.

If you wish to order a photograph of one of our works, please send an email to the museum and include the following information: the work/works desired and your intended use of the image(s) (describing the nature of the intended publication, its scope/ edition run, whether it will be used on the front cover or inside the publication, etc.). Send your email to:

You can form an idea about the costs involved by consulting the list below. Here you will also find the terms and conditions applying to your use and reproduction of the images.

We endeavour to process your order within two weeks. However, please note that longer processing times must be expected when taking new photographs.

The artist’s copyright has expired for most of the artists represented in the Hirschsprung Collection; this happens seventy years after the relevant artist’s death. However, some exceptions do apply, and we strongly urge you to contact VISDA to ascertain whether the relevant artist or his/her heirs still hold copyright to the work you intend to use.
