18 Places to Find Free Art

Gratisography

Art plays a huge role in our lives, but when it comes to decorating it can end up at the bottom of the list. (You know, after things like furniture.) I did some digging and rounded up 18 resources that will cater to all of your art needs with vintage illustrations, LIFE photography, and more! A few are a little less polished than others and require more digging for that perfect image, but they’re all treasure troves of legal art free-ness. Think outside of the 8×10 and consider printing large scale black and white engineering prints, repeating the same print in one frame, embellishing with further editing, or adding elements like paint or embroidery.
