Bridgeman Artists' Copyright Service (BACS)

For over 40 years, Bridgeman has provided a service for artists and artists' estates, to administer their entire copyright and sell reproduction licences of their work.
 

Our experience in this field allows us to evaluate requests, price licences and police the market effectively 

Artists benefit by earning an income while relieving the administrative burden of managing copyright.  

Clients benefit as photographic rights and artists' copyright can be cleared in a single transaction 

Even if the work of art is not in held by the Bridgeman Art Library, copyright can still be cleared
