Most art museums have only limited online collections, but a few museums, as well as some libraries and government agencies, have developed substantial online catalogues. Museums, libraries, and government agencies with substantial online collections include:

 

The British Museum has over 4,000,000 objects of all types available online, of which 1,018,471 have one or more images (as of June 2019).[17]

Library of Congress, prints (C19 on) and photographs collection (several million entries).[18]

Metropolitan Museum of Art has "406,000 hi-res images of public-domain works from the collection that can be downloaded, shared, and remixed without restriction".[19]

Rijksmuseum has 399,189 objects available online, of which 153,309 have one or more images.[20]

National Portrait Gallery, with over 215,000 works, 150,000 of which are illustrated, including paintings, prints and photographic portraits.[21]

MOMA (Museum of Modern Art), with nearly 50,000 works from collections of painting, drawing, print, sculpture, film, photography, and performance art.

Boston Museum of Fine Arts, with over 330,000 works, most with images. Good for prints.

Fine Art Museums of San Francisco, with over 85,000 works.

Harvard Art Museums, with over 233,000 works online.[22]

Online art collections Edit

There are a number of online art catalogues and galleries that have been developed independently of the support of any individual museum. Many of these, like American Art Gallery, are attempts to develop galleries of artwork that are encyclopedic or historical in focus, while others are commercial efforts to sell the work of contemporary artists.

 

A limited number of such sites have independent importance in the art world. The large auction houses, such as Sotheby's, Bonhams, and Christie's, maintain large online databases of art which they have auctioned or are auctioning. Bridgeman Art Library serves as a central source of reproductions of artwork, with access limited to museums, art dealers, and other professionals or professional organizations.

 

Folksonomy Edit

There are also online galleries that have been developed by a collaboration of museums and galleries that are more interested with the categorization of art. They are interested in the potential use of folksonomy within museums and the requirements for post-processing of terms that have been gathered, both to test their utility and to deploy them in useful ways.

 

The steve.museum is one example of a site that is experimenting with this collaborative philosophy. The participating institutions include the Guggenheim Museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.Most art museums have only limited online collections, but a few museums, as well as some libraries and government agencies, have developed substantial online catalogues.
