hi, sorry about that. for spam reasons, they are skeptical of copyright ownership claims here. they will require email boilerplate via Com:OTRS. in addition, relying on the National Portrait Gallery photo,[1] is a problem. they have not released a license for the photo, and the Bridgeman decision was for 2D art scans. however, i can talk to the smithsonian, or go take another picture.
for the long term, are you interested in documenting the works and getting photos on commons? this would take some effort but some art history editors would be interested. Slowking4 § Sander.v.Ginkel's revenge 16:26, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
