Image and Data Resources from the Met

I came across and interesting article on the Metropolitan Museum's Web page that states the will have an "Open Access Policy" to images they believe are in the public domain.  So I put in 'Medieval Textiles' and an 'good' image of Courtiers in a Rose Garden: A Lady and Two Gentlemen came up with the Public Domain symbol displayed.

Then I put in 'Medieval Embroideries' and got very excited.  (This is a section of a larger work.)

I am going to be able to look at and uses as inspiration such a range of work.
