Image Request Details

  • Licensing requests must be submitted at least eight weeks prior to the date each image is needed, to ensure adequate processing time. Additional time may be required if an object requires new photography.
  • Requests must include the name of the requester, contact information, and the intended use of each image. When applicable, requests should also include authors and publishers, print run, anticipated date of publication, requested collection image, and any requirements for the format of the photography.
  • Images will not be provided to the requester until the payment of fees, if applicable, is received by CMOA. You may pay by credit card (MasterCard or Visa only) or wire transfer (additional fee).
  • Although CMOA may own an artwork, the artist or their estate may be represented by an agency that specifically oversees the artist’s copyright. If an image is presumed to be under copyright or if rights are managed by Artist Rights Society (ARS), the requester must first obtain copyright clearance before CMOA may license an image for publication.
  • Licensing pricing is based on one-time editions, world rights (all languages). Permissions cannot be granted in perpetuity.
  • Copying or redistributing images from CMOA’s collection or archives in any form, whether for personal or corporate commercial gain, is prohibited. Please read our reproduction terms of use for publication.
