A museum owns the work I want to reproduce. Why do I still have to ask ADAGP for permission and pay it royalties ?

You must not confuse the material ownership of a work or a digital file containing the image of this work with the copyrights that are invested in the artist or his/her beneficiaries. If the work you want to reproduce belongs to the catalogue managed by Adagp, then you have to apply to Adagp who will handle your reproduction request.

Royalties will be paid for this use to Adagp, as with all other uses.
