Get images from Google art project?

I want to download hi-res images from Google Art Project.
http://www.google.com/culturalinstit...ct/art-project

With the intention of having some artwork printed on canvas or possibly a finer textile.

The site doesn't offer the option of downloading, which is disappointing.
The artists I like have been dead for over 200 years, so it should be fair-use IMHO.

But I imagine they had to make a deal with those museums, and those museums have museum shops.

I have looked for a solution, but can't find any.

Does anybody know a way to download images from Google Art Project?

In other words, it's a virtual gallery and you can't take the pictures down off the walls. If you want to use any of the pictures, then go to the museum's website and see what their terms are. Or else, search for the images on sites like Wikimedia Commons or Creative Commons. Or just use Google Image search and find images that are clearly marked copyright-free.

Dammit.

I'll give Corbis a shot.
Hopefully it won't cost too much.

Cannot download them as .jpg. Can download them as a webpage. This means you can look at a page even if you do not have access to the internet. Method
1. Use Google Chrome (may work for other products but I use Chrome)
2. At the top right of the page, to the right of the URL there are a series of short horizontal lines. Click this icon. A menu appears
3. Click the save as button.
4. Save the page somewhere. Remember this location.
5. Go to that location and click on the saved file. The page appears.

You can do steps 2 and 3 by ctrl+S.

That's useful for viewing the images off-line.
But Really wanted a hi-res image to make a large print.
It is supposed to cover a whole wall with printed textile, hiding the sound isolation foam behind it.

I'll have to see if stock image sites have art available.

I'm mostly interested in old Japanese and European renaissance works.

It is worth checking wikimedia commons because one of its users has managed to grab a lot of the high resolution files off google art:

Excellent! Thank you.

It's organised by collection, so it will take some browsing.

I'm sure there's plenty to my liking here.

I imagine it took a skilled photographer with a high-end camera quite some time to take such quality photographs.

True. Don't know about the rights of the photographer in that case. I imagine the Museum buys those rights.

It depends from case to case. Artists have the rights to their works and can "rent" them out for a predetermined period.
