Prints in the format of 13x18 cm can be ordered directly at a cost of € 6,00 (18 x 24 cm at € 8,00) by writing to or contacting the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen by E-mail. Reproduction permission, that will be charged, is also available from there.
TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE GALLERIES
Taking photographs – exclusively for private use – is permitted in the following galleries of the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen (Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, Pinakothek der Moderne, Sammlung Schack and branch galleries in Bavaria) without flash and tripod.
We would like to point out a change to Museum Regulations. As of 1 January, 2012, photography will no longer be permitted inside the Museum Brandhorst in order to help conserve the works of art. Thank you for your appreciation in this matter.
Reproduction permission granted by the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen or commissioned organisations refers only to the ordered photo. Copyright of the artwork – particularly where Modern and Contemporary Art is concerned – must be clarified in each individual case for publication! This applies also to privately taken photographs in the event of publication.
