Reproduction and representation rights
Filming and distributing an artwork require that the author grant prior authorisation, and that the author be compensated. See our directory to know if the artwork rights that you wish to use are managed by the ADAGP.

Have a question about the use of one or many artworks for an audio-visual project?
General agreements are for professionals who broadcast ADAGP Images in extremely high numbers, like television channels, video-on-demand platforms, or specialised websites. These contracts allow the use of 200,000 artists’ artworks in the ADAGP’s directory, without requesting prior authorization for each artwork. The copyrights are taken care of by the broadcaster, as such, there are no additional rights to settle, unless you need a wider public dissemination. In this case, you will need to file an online request.
