images of Indian miniatures
Hi i am trying to find this original image, do you have any idea as to where i can purchase a large size with rights to use commercially?
Hi MalekUnfortunately I don't know the titles of the original paintings, but I did find this site where Indian artists have copied the 2 paintings to sell:http://www.exoticindiaart.com/product/paintings/sufi-PA38/All I can tell you is that they are probably Mughal and depict dervishes fakirs or sufis. Good luck.They are wonderful paintings. They are probably in the collection of a museum somewhere, and museums often provide high res images of works, for non profit use, if you email them. Commercial rights might be harder.If a painter makes a copy of an old painting (and there is nothing wrong with this as long as he is not trying to pass it off as the original), I think the copyright is with the modern artist, and you don't have to worry about the rights of the museum or collector who owns the original old painting, but I could be wrong.
Just to clarify - I don't mean that the copyist takes over the copyright of the original painting, but the copy is treated as a new work of art with it's own copyright.And usually, the artist holds copyright of the image even if he sells the physical painting.
