LACMA is the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. They are now offering almost 20,000 public domain images, free for use on websites, videos, school reports or anything else your little heart desires. That’s a pretty amazing thing, really.

Just go to their collections site and when you are presented with images, check the box that says, “Show only results with unrestricted images”.
