"We find Bridgeman Education an invaluable tool for our students… It allows them to gain direct access to high quality, copyright-cleared, original images that are clearly referenced. The thematic links help to lead students beyond their starting points to associated imagery, as well as into different fields that broaden the scope of their ideas. As the internet becomes clogged with blogs, copies and pastiches of artists’ works it is increasingly difficult for students to differentiate between original material and second rate sources, but by directing them via Bridgeman Education we are assured that they return to class with high quality images."
Oakham School, 2011
