The Culture and Leisure Department is pleased to offer an online print order facility, in association with Fitzgeralds Photographic Services. A selection of paintings, historic prints and local photographs from the Guernsey Museums & Galleries collection is available for purchase using a fully searchable third-party web service. You can search the site for associated keywords or browse through images within the categories of Artworks, Photographs or Maps & Prints. These categories are further subdivided on the site by artist or subject.

If you wish to reproduce our images for commercial purposes, please follow the link (right) to Image Rights.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does the word 'Photograph' appears in the headings on some of the search pages, even when I'm looking at images of artworks?
We're actually offering prints that have been created photographically.

What is the image quality?
Our images are derived either from professionally taken medium format transparencies, from recent all-digital photography, or from direct high-resolution scans. They are printed on good quality art paper, using archival quality inks.

Will the pictures fade?
The archival quality inks used by our processing bureau have excellent fade resistance under normal conditions. As with any original photograph or artwork, prolonged exposure of prints to direct sunlight will cause more rapid fading than displaying them in more shaded conditions.

My picture doesn't fill the page, is that correct?
We normally supply reproductions no bigger than the size of the original - and in the same proportion. In the case of a 'wide format' work there will inevitably be white space above and below the image on the standard paper sizes we use.

Do I have to pay VAT on my order?
This service is based in the Channel Islands and no VAT is payable on local CI orders. Orders from the UK and other EU countries will be liable for VAT at the appropriate rates.

Can I buy prints of other images of artworks on your website?
We will be working to extend the current range of prints on offer. Copyright issues may prevent us reproducing more recent works or those not owned by the States of Guernsey. Please contact the Fine Art Curator if you have a particular favourite which you would like to see offered as a print, but we cannot necessarily undertake to offer it on this site
