Leonardo da Vinci
We take artists' rights very seriously and sign a licensing agreement wherever possible. The first contract we signed was with the Accademia dell'Arte in Venice for Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man. Before we started this project, I would never have thought that it was necessary to sign a licence agreement for an artist who died so many years ago. But we take it seriously, did research and found out that you need a contract. MuseARTa is proud to have an exclusive worldwide contract to reproduce this artwork on textiles.

Tamara de Lempicka
We take artists' rights very seriously and sign a licence agreement wherever possible. What a powerhouse. Tamara de Lempicka was THE face of the Art Deco era and a true citizen of the world. Born and raised in Warsaw, holidays since her youth in Lausanne, first contact with the art of painting in Florence, a husband from St. Petersburg with whom she lived there until the October Revolution, then moving to Copenhagen, from there to Paris where she continued her studies and began as a painter. She quickly became famous, divorced, married her second husband from Hungary and moved to Los Angeles to escape Nazi Germany. From there she moved to New York and later to Mexico. Her art rights are still in the family and are managed by her great-granddaughter. Needless to say, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the direct descendant of such a great woman and artist who inspired so many people.

We take artists' rights very seriously and sign a licensing agreement wherever possible. We are proud to announce that we have secured a licensing agreement for the artwork of René Magritte, the Belgian master of Surrealism. Magritte decided early on to paint objects with only their most striking details. It was interesting for us to find out that he was friends with Salvador Dalí, for whom we also signed a licence, as well as with other important artists of the time such as André Breton, Max Ernst, Joan Miró or Pablo Picasso. Today, Magritte is the most famous artist in Belgium and is exhibited in famous museums such as the Metropolitain Museum of Art, the Modern Museum of Art or the Centre Georges Pompidou. For us it is a great honour to be able to work for this artist who had such a great influence on the development of pop art, minimalist art and conceptual art.

We take artists' rights very seriously and sign a licensing agreement wherever possible. We are proud to have our first Salvador Dalí socks ready. It was difficult to get in touch with the decision makers at Fundación Gala and Salvador Dalí and make them understand that it is possible to bring the fantastic artwork of Salvador Dalí without the cheap printing technology but through the much more complicated knitting technology. We prefer knitting because the colours are much brighter and last longer. Many factories told us it was impossible, but that only challenged us to work harder at it. When the Fundación Gala team and Salvador Dalí saw what we were capable of, they were convinced that we were the right partners. We are honoured to be able to work for such a fantastic artist.
