THE GOLDEN BOOK

Category: NEWS-EN

01298VAlready over two months of a correspondence job that I thought was tedious to get the permissions to use the images of my website. In reality, a lot of satisfaction and a huge source of encouragement. With the exception of someone who told me about "negotiations" and "lawyers" , all the painters I could contact responded favorably and very quickly.
The three key words of their answers:
     - thanks
     - congratulations
     - encouragements.

Thank you, gentlemen! You gave me the strength to continue my work. Here are excerpts from your answers:

After a proposal remained unanswered to the New York Yacht Club, I received these wonderful emails from Emirates / TEAM NEW ZEALAND that show us that, even if the money is essential, it is still the passion that has allowed and will allow to lift the Cup.   After Rosenstiel’s through Steven Dews, another website responded to my emails. Again, a thoughtful answer written by a competent and passionate person.
Go visit the Mariners' Museum and Park because he deserves it.

Hello Yves,
Can I say what a fantastic site you have created and can quickly see how it has been a passionate labour of love for you. What an amazingly in-depth history of the early years of the America’s Cup and its vessels.
In saying this, unfortunately I am not in a position to purchase or advertise on the site.
But I can see how you would like to see this to survive you for the value to the America’s Cup community it holds so interested to discuss this more. This is some fantastic content.
Have you managed to licence all of the imagery you use on the site as there are some amazing images.

I look forward to hearing from you
Regards
HAMISH

Hi Yves,
Yes, please do not let our lack of resource deter you.
This is an incredible site you have curated. And it would be a great shame to see lost.
I am very keen to keep in touch with you and see what can be done to preserve your work for the good of the America's Cup community over time.
As mentioned licenses of images is a tricky one for us, but I am sure many of the rights holders of the images would like to see them being used with complete relevance.

Lets stay in touch
Regards
HAMISH

Mr. Gary,

Thank you for your correspondence. It has taken us a while to get back to you as we took time to think about how to handle this situation. We have checked out your website and notice that even though you had used 287 images from our site without contacting us for prior permission that you have given the museum credit in those cases and provided links (though many are no longer valid) to our website. We do acknowledge that this has been a service to us, directing your users to us. Therefore, you may continue to use the images; however, please update the links and credit us as "The Mariners' Museum and Park" as we are now known.
By the way, I notice many of your images are marked as Public Domain, You may want to do some research on that part because many may not be automatically in the public domain. Good luck with your site, it is obvious that you have put much work into it. Take care.

Hi Yves,
yes that looks ok , did you put my website www.colinmbaxter.co.uk on there as a link ? That would be helpful please. But you are welcome to include me on your site.
Some of those images were done for a book on the J Class, I have a copy of that for sale if you have a spare £600 + shipping .
Thanks for getting in touch about the copyright , not everyone thinks of that . As none of those images can be downloaded for commercial gain .
Cheers
Colin M Baxter
 
  Good morning Yves,
 
I have looked at your site and am happy with it and that you have added our site info (www.timthompsonmarineart.com) to the top of the list.    However, there are a few of the images on your page that I no longer have copyright on.     Are you by any chance interested in a commission or buying in some fine art prints at a good price?   You will see on Quidley & Company, Russell Jinishian and Sheldon Fine Art sites some of my more recent works.
 
Best regards
Tim

Dear Yves

Thank you for your kind email. I am delighted for you to use my photos on your site.
I am currently working on a number of new Americas cup paintings that I'd be delighted to send you for your site.

Best Regards
Shane

 

 

 
 

Hi Yves Gary,

I am very pleased that you are posting my images and details on your website.Do you know Christian Fevrier- a very good friend whom I have not heard from in a while.
You seem to have a fairly complete set of my America's Cup paintings- what else would you like.
 
Kind regards,
Anthony

Dear Yves Gary

I have received via my friend Glenn Dunn, your request for permission to publish my work on your website.
Thank you for your enquiry.

I, personally, have no problem and would look forward to working with you on this. However, as you would expect, all the paintings are copyrighted. My publishers, Rosenstiel’s would have to give permission. With this in mind, I have passed your request on to them and hope for a speedy and favourable response.

If, in the event they are happy, I will send other images etc for you to include.
I am familiar with your work as I have enjoyed reading your articles in the past.

Kind regards,
Steven.
  Dear Yves Gary

I have just heard back from David Roe, Rosenstiel’s and he is perfectly happy for you to go ahead with publishing the images. However, he did stipulate that the images be of low resolution. This would obviously stop reproductions being made from them. You probably do this anyway but he just asked this of you so we can maintain control of reproduction distribution and quality.

He did make the comment re the work you put in and your income stream for all this work. With that in mind, he did suggest that you could perhaps retail, fine art prints from your sight. He would be happy to talk to you regarding this if you thought this appropriate.

Rosenstiel’s are probably one of the largest and most successful fine art publishers in Europe, possibly internationally. I have worked with them for around forty years and enjoyed every minute of it.
Please let me know your thoughts as I would be more than happy to put you both in touch.

Kind regards,
Steven.
Richard Lane (March 31, 2019)   Russ Kramer (March 31, 2019)

Thanks Yves,

Yes I give my permission. That bio looks like one from a gallery I use to show at.

If you can make two corrections, if not no big deal.  I belong to the ship model society of New Jersey. Not northern New Jersey. The other is the sentence about me only painting seven canvases a year. Can you omit that ? I do much more than that.

I'm also on instagram. Richardlaneart.

Thanks for your interest.
Richard

 

Hello Yves,

Thank you for your email regarding my watercolors.

Good morning Yves,
What a remarkable website and please take this email as permission to utilise images of my paintings. I feel my contribution to Americas Cup art has been limited compared to the many other British & American artists you've featured.
Are you able to update the narrative section with a few things as follows?
...
I may send you a couple more recent photographs to include.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Paul

Very nice Yves,

That article is perfectly fine. Thank you.

I am familiar with your site and I have enjoyed looking through it many times. Quite a bit of work went into it I am sure.

Good you updated some of the gallery information...

All the best to you,

Bruno Angius (April 10, 2019)   Cris Hammond (April 11, 2019)

Hello Yves,

I watched your site. In my opinion, that is a complete, remarkable and well done effort that covers an epic period of the story of sailing: the heroic enterprises of the America's Cup. Thank you for your great work !

To me, it is a honor and a privilege to be mentioned in your article. Many sincere thanks for that, with all my approval !

Gratefully
Bruno Angius

 

Yves,

Yes, I am happy to authorize your use of my images. I'll also attach three more paintings that might interest you. They are of classic sailing vessels on the Pacific, although not America's Cup vessels.

Thank you for including me on your website. It's nice to be a part of it.

Cheers,
Cris Hammond, Author - Artist

Nicolas Fox (April 16, 2019)   Martin Swan (April 25, 2019)

Dear Yves,

I am happy to grant you permission to use my paintings and bio on your site. I've visited america-scoop multiple times and have used it as a resource! Thank you for all your work.

I am working on a large scale Reliance v Shamrock III right now for the Mystic International. When it is done, I will send you an image...Are you living in France? My daughter is living in Paris now, and I will probably visit France in the fall. I was greatly saddened to see Notre Dame in flames. Thankfully, much seems to have been saved.

Be well,
Nick

 

Hello Yves,

Yes, I am happy for you to use images of my Americas Cup paintings for your article. It might be useful, in an editorial sort of way, if you could send it to me before publication for my comments.

What else, specifically, are you interested in regarding my paintings?

All the best,
Martin Swan.
