  4. 4. @SimonTanner In 2012, the US National Gallery of Art launched its new NGA Images site: ‘NGA Images [is] a new online resource that revolutionizes the way the public may interact with its world-class collection,’ wrote Alan Newman at the US National Gallery of Art. ‘Since inception more than 400,000 images have been downloaded’. The Walters Art Museum also makes 19,000 images freely available. William Noel: ‘The Walters loss of control of its images was essential to its success… Why did we make our data free and open? So that it would be used. How do I know it’s been used? Well, we have 2.5 million views on Flickr in 3.5 years, and that’s just one of many interfaces (the most popular; the least archival) by which our images are viewed.’ Rob Stein in relation to the Dallas Museum of Art: ‘As an institution it was important for us to publish our entire collection online… The reasoning went beyond transparency and openness: we felt that we needed to more positively and strongly broadcast the fact that the Dallas Museum of Art has a deep and encyclopaedic collection.’ Practitioners impact my research
