About images of works
Based on Article 47 of the Copyright Law of Japan (as revised January 1, 2019), and based on “Guidelines on Article 47 of the Copyright Law Concerning Reproductions Accompanying Exhibition of Artworks, etc.” published by six copyright management organizations and museum-related organizations (Japan Artists Association, Inc., Japan Art Copyright Association, Japan Photographic Copyright Association, Japanese Association of Museums, The Japanese Council of Art Museums, Japan Book Publishers Association), and based on “Guidelines for Article 47 of Law No. 30 of 2018 (partial amendment of copyright law)” published by Japanese Society for Protecting Artists' Rights, the Yokohama Museum of Art "Collection Search" displays thumbnail-size (32,400 pixels or less) images of works regardless of whether the copyright is protected or not.

Images will be added and updated over time as they are prepared or as the relevant copyright protection period allows.
