How do I order a reproduction of a work from the collection?

Once the online form has been submitted a member of our team will be in touch either with a quote for use or for further discussion. If you have any questions before submitting your online form please contact picture.library@nationalgalleries.org where a member of our team will be happy to assist.

What forms of payment are accepted?

How can I tell if a work is available for reproduction?

In the first instance search the National Galleries of Scotland's online collection. Alternatively contact the Picture Library with the artist's name and the title of the work, either by completing the online order form or emailing any queries to picture.library@nationalgalleries.org.

How can I research the National Galleries of Scotland collection?

You can research the collection in the following ways:

  • Via our Online Collection, which contains details of many of the works in the Galleries' collection
  • By visiting the IT Gallery at the Gardens Entrance of the Scottish National Gallery
  • By visiting the Galleries' various research resources
  • Via the range of Gallery publications about the collection. These are available in your local library and are available to purchase from our online shop

The Picture Library can also help with simple requests about the Collection, though unfortunately we do not have the resources to engage in lengthy or complex picture research requests.

Once you have identified the works you wish to have reproduced please contact us and we can begin processing your order.
