Recent projects we have collaborated on...

Coca-Cola, "Masterpiece" (2023). Much of the artwork came from our collection and we also ensured permissions were granted along with indemnifying the use of the images. 

  • Bridgeman Images' Research Team were briefed on the project and supplied hundreds of images to help fill the Masterpiece Gallery. Blitzworks, the creative agency behind the campaign, then curated the final selection from this pool of images.
  • Unable to trace the publishing history of one of the tempera versions of The Scream - to ensure there was no breach of copyright - the black and white lithograph version was used so Blitzworks' team could colourise the image to match the Masterpiece set design.
  • Our add-on indemnification service guaranteed that the campaign could run globally, without risk of complicated image rights liabilities.
