Getty Makes Art Books Available for Free Download

Getty has created a new online virtual library, offering over 250 art books, now available for free download.  Don't forget that animators are artists; a good understanding of the visual arts and art history helps to give depth and context to your work. Here at Animation Apprentice we encourage all our students to take advantage of the growing quantity of free content available online for student use.

This new initiative from Getty is all part of their Open Content Program, launched ion 2014. Getty released 4,600 collection images to the public (a number that has since more than doubled).  Getty have now created the Virtual Library: An open, online repository of more than 250 Getty publications from their 45-year publishing history, now available as high-quality scans to read online, or to download in their entirety, for free.
