The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF) provide images for a variety of purposes. We have over 80,000 images of prints, drawings, paintings, textiles and 3-dimensional artwork from our permanent collections. If you’d like to browse our collection, visit the ImageBase where you can search for artwork by artist or title.

Product development

If you are developing a product (poster, T-shirt, mouse pad, etc.) please contact our Museum Stores.

Personal use

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide prints for personal use at this time. Please visit the FAMSF Museum Stores, where we have many posters, postcards and note cards.

Commercial or scholarly publications

Please read our conditions for print and electronic publication. These conditions make up the body of our licensing agreement.

We do charge fees to offset the cost of this service. When we receive your order, a quote will be sent to you with pertinent copyright information. Once you confirm your order, an invoice and licensing agreement will be emailed to you. As soon as we receive payment and the signed licensing agreement from you, we will send you the image file. We will make every attempt to accommodate your deadline. Rush service is available in some instances. We are able to accept check, Visa, MasterCard, or international bank transfer.

Sample fees:

  • Black-and-white 8x10 photograph: $40
  • High resolution TIFF file: $100
  • New photography: $150 and up

We also charge reproduction fees. These depend on the scope of your project and your commercial/non-profit status.
