We do not operate as an agency. We work more broadly, offering a wide range of artistic styles and selected content to specific client sectors.


Our mission? To offer the best of art and culture in the world - in print - to support museums, artists and collections.


An international network


We have offices in London, New York, Paris, Bologna and Berlin and work with over 40,000 clients worldwide, as well as agencies operating on our behalf in regions such as South East Asia, Japan and South America.

No other source can match the depth and breadth of Bridgeman Images' collection of historical and contemporary art images. We have dedicated teams who have built strong relationships with museums and contemporary studio artists and actively seek out new sources of content every day.
