A photograph - if protected - can not be used without permission.
Actually making a photograph of a painting is not just pointing the
camera towards the painting. The type of protection may vary from
country to country but never take for granted that a photograph just can
be used. Behind their is always a photographer that will need his butter
on the bread just like anybody else,
