Reproducing Painting


I would like to know if I would be allowed to reproduce (print an original painting or design of a Jewish or a non-Jewish artist onto a canvas) and hang it in my home or office and not for the purpose of selling it and making a profit?

Thank you!


Yes, to my understanding this is fine.

Best wishes.


I understand that your suggested reproduction (for private use) will not fall under copyright prohibitions, and in this case the Torah law will be generally parallel to copyright law.

  1. Does this heter apply to pictures found online which one would like to print for personal use?
