The Met is pleased to offer digital print reproductions of some of its most prized works of art, including many that are rarely on view because of their sensitivity to light. Each work of art is digitally photographed and expertly color-corrected against the original work of art. Images are printed in-house by the staff of the Museum's Photograph Studio on high-resolution, professional ink jet printers, using archival, fine-art papers. These studio prints are of the highest quality, and our digital reproductions are carefully vetted by our curators to ensure near-perfect fidelity to the original works of art.
