I wanted to post some Brunelleshi images, as I see correspondences, but I cannot quite seem to master the image insertion, and I am more confused about visual copyright issues than not, so I will cede the matter to luke.
Artist and Bibliophile
Brunelleschi is compared far more often with Leonardo for the very reason that his genius was so far ranging. Like Leonardo he was also a brilliant inventor and engineer.
Copyright law with regard to art is very clear. A copy of another artist's artwork cannot be copy-written. Since the goal in photographing a work of art is to offer the most accurate copy of the original, such a photograph cannot be given copyright protection. Where an image of a work of art can be copy-written in when the photograph of the work of art is staged in such a way to offer a unique image. For example, I could be given copyright protection if I were to photograph someone standing next to the Mona Lisa. The other instance in which a photograph of a work of art may be subject to copyright considerations is if the original art object is more recent and still protected by copyright law. Even then, photographs of new works of art are subject to free use laws if the purpose is critical discussion. Brunelleschi? Post away! Let's hear what you think.
