The YCBA (@YaleBritishArt) has been shar­ing high-res­o­lu­tion images of its col­lec­tion objects in the pub­lic domain since Yale Uni­ver­si­ty adopt­ed its Open Access Pol­i­cy in 2011, and today about 71,000 such images are avail­able for down­load free of charge, includ­ing for com­mer­cial usage: http://britishart.yale.edu/collections/search

The YCBA also makes its images avail­able as IIIF assets. We pub­lish a top-lev­el col­lec­tion that con­tains child col­lec­tions for paint­ings, sculp­ture, etc.   The col­lec­tions con­tain the IIIF Man­i­fests for each object.   

Machine read­able YCBA data can be accessed cur­rent­ly by har­vest­ing XML meta­da­ta (LIDO XML)and query­ing Linked Open Data seman­tic end­point (data orga­nized there with CIDOC CRM ontol­ogy).
