Free Autumn Art for your Frame TV

Updated: Oct 6


If you've been around the internet at all in the past couple years, I'm sure you've heard/seen people using art from the Public Domain. Essentially this is art that has had it's copyright expired (copyright protection typically lasts the lifetime of the artist plus an additional 70 years after their death.) This means there are archives of thousands of pieces of original art that anyone freely can use. Lucky us, huh?



Here are a few that caught my eye for this season:



The Field By Alice Pike Barney



Falling Leaves by Olga Wisinger-Florian



October Day by Jean Charles Cazin





Still Life with Apples by Charles Ethan Porter




Bouquet with Daisies and Gold Lacquer by Eugène Henri Cauchois



I've taken my time to curate a few pieces that spoke to me personally and size them to correctly fit a Frame TV resolution out of the pure love and appreciation of art.




Download them sized correctly here (I prefer them to display with the no mat option):
