    I have a digital image previously acquired and am requesting permission to reproduce it again. I am an art historian and this is for my book Calling Memory into Place, which will be published by Rutgers University Press in 2020. This is a scholarly publication aimed primarily at an academic audience with a small number of hard cover copies for libraries, 1500 paperbacks, and e-books. Let me know if there is a fee. Thank you.
