There are plenty of reasons to visit St. Moritz in the Swiss Alps at the height of summer. When ski season is over, the picturesque towns along the Engadine river become hosts to a number of cultural events, including a jazz festival and an old-timer show, not to mention the breathtaking vistas that await hikers. But another great reason to take the nearly four-hour train ride from Zurich to St. Moritz is the 10-day festival St. Moritz Art Masters.
This year's edition of St. Moritz Art Masters focuses on neighboring Italy, with shows by post-war masters like Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni, and more.

It’s better to be foreign and younger in today’s art world, which voraciously craves newer, fresher talent. And so, in an effort to revamp its museum system, Italy announced this week that its top 20 museums are getting new directors. Aside from the fact of such a significant staff turnover, the news came as a surprise because so many of the new directors are non-Italian in origin, younger than 50, or both. Perhaps most notable among the new staff is the Uffizi’s new director, the German art historian Eike Schmidt, who comes from the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Schmidt is one of five Americans who will now join the staff of Italy’s best museums, and, at age 47, he is one of 12 directors younger than 50. The staff is also becoming less male—half of the new directors are women. Above, a look at the Italy’s new museum directors.

A photography license—the agreement or contract between the photographer and their representative and the user of the image—spells out specifically who can use the image, for what purpose, and on what terms. Those terms can get pretty confusing. Here are a few things to consider when you’re thinking about licensing images.
The different types of licenses and agreements that determine how the photographers can use various images.
