The Office of Rights & Reproductions will be temporarily closed starting December 14, 2012 through June 2013. At this time please contact Art Resource for ALL reproduction requests. They can be reached at 212-505-8700 or at firstname.lastname@example.org . Requests for personal prints or research images will not be taken during this time or through Art Resource and will resume again in June 2013. Thank you for your patience during this time.
The Office of Rights and Reproductions at the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution:
Sells prints and slides of the unrestricted portraits in its collection
Licenses images for use in books, magazines, television, CD-ROMs, and other media.
The office will make every effort to assist with general requests, however, this is not a research facility. The Catalog of American Portraits (CAP) is another source for individual research and an appointment to visit the CAP may be made by calling (202) 633-8260. The CAP's database of nearly 70,000 portrait records is easily accessed through our Portrait Search area. The National Portrait Gallery and American Art Library may also be utilized by the public for research by calling (202) 633-8230 to make an appointment.
