Theatre Images

Drawings, paintings and photographs can be a great source of visual information about architecture, styles and fashions, economic classes in a society, the cities, neighborhoods, modes of transportation, sports, hobbies, pasttimes and other features which might be related to the setting or the plot of a play. The following large collections of images are available online.

Copyright Issues

Various types of copyright and licenses apply to the images. If you intend to do more than print a copy for your own use or simply get ideas from them, it's best to use images which are "in the public domain," meaning that their copyrights have expired, or images which are covered by one of the Creative Commons licenses which allows public use and/or redistribution of the images.
