- 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, 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)
