The Art of National Geographic

For more than a century, the National Geographic Society's illustrators have taken readers to places beyond the reach of the camera's lens. 

Bridgeman is excited to announce a new partnership with the National Geographic Image Collection. 
 
For more than a century, the National Geographic Society's illustrators have taken readers to places beyond the reach of the camera's lens, enigmatically re-imagining the daily life of our early ancestors and detailing the rich mysteries of the natural world. Hundreds of these beautiful illustrations are now available for licensing for the first time via the Bridgeman Art Library, exploring science and nature, humankind's accomplishments and conflicts, and all the wonders of the universe in a wide variety of media.

Most of the images require no additional copyright fee and are available for immediate downloading. This collection of imagery adds to an extensive selection of cultural and educational content within the library suitable for licensing for a wide range of purposes, from academic publishing to retro inspired products.
