    legal question about images on my blog

    Hello everyone... I just opened up a blog at blogger.com. It´s some kind of sketchbook or record of my progression, but I would also like to make a post about art that inspires me. Does anyone know if its ok to post pictures from other artists (most of them are dead ) on my blog and if so, should I link pictures from online galleries or can I upload them by myself to blogspot. Thanks for helping


    I also would like to know, if I can post studies from anatomical books?

    People do it all the time. Just make sure you point out who did what.

    Thanks for your fast response. I also think so, but wanted to get a second opinion.

    I don't know why you need a second opinion on this to be honest?

    As long as you aren't making money from it you should be fine.

    If your unsure about posting certain images you can always contact the artist, shoot him/her an e-mail asking if its ok to post one of their art pieces.

    I've run a blog for a few years now that highlights artists of the past. There shouldn't be a problem as it falls under fair use/ public benefit clause. Blogs like underpaintings, gurneyjourney, lines and colors, and todays inspiration do it all the time check them out and you will see what I mean
