I Wonder if There's a Bag Limit

Earlier today I found myself searching for an artist credit for this image. 

(Probably painted by someone not named Pinterest)

After over an hour I still don't have the artists name (in every instance it is used it is credited to one of several image hosting sites).

Normal procedures at this blog are to move on to a different picture (unless it's a reaction shot or meme).

However, the initial Google search I conducted turned up this astounding and edifying result.


I'll have to be more careful. 

Hit one of those, it's going to be worse than a moose.

1 That's odd; my Google image search had gettimages.pt as the #6 result (not the version on gettyimages.com, oddly enough). Credits go to the Bettman Archive, and Getty wants $575 to license it, but the listed date of January 1, 1900 should put it out of copyright.

2 That is peculiar. Google bubble perhaps?
I normally use Epic as my browser, but google disallows image searches via Epic so I did it in Opera (which I almost never use for anything) and this is the first page...

There was a Bettaman/Corbis credit on the Daily Mail article, but that isn't the artist. 

$575.00 huh?
According to the wikipedia article Corbis owns the Bettamann archive and Corbis doesn't do the licensing gig anymore.
How is Getty involved?
Given that in this context its a relevant example commentary on a specifc weird search result, it might actually be fair use.  OTOH, being painted in 1900 would put it in the public domain. OTGH January first is a suspicious date.
Perhaps Pixy can make a call. Otherwise I'll just delete the post. 
Why is life so complicated?

3 What do you get if you click on "Medium" right next to the thumbnail?

4 My suggestion:

Take a photo of the screen.  Draw a monocle and a moustache on the heffalump.  Take a photo of that, send it back in time by Weeping Angel Parcel Service (WAPS!), and use it to sue the Daily Mail for infringement.  (They're used to it.)

What do you get if you click on "Medium" right next to the thumbnail?

1: An angry medium with a bruised cuticle.

 2: Slapped.

3: One excuse amongst the many for why no spirits were contacted that doesn't actually involve special pleading.

4: No refund.

6 Or this...
I see there is a Getty stamp on one of them now, but the others had nothing or the Bettaman/Corbin stamp or nothing at all. 
Does this jive with what you're seeing?

7 Pixy.

I may need a walkthrough on that. Parts of it sound risky.

8 Yup. We are now on the same page. :-)
