Hi Heather, You could include Google Arts & Culture, it's a very good source, when it comes to high resolution images (quite useful for the C.S.).

Dear Heather, I have a student that wants to use images from the internet to create a montage around her figurative painting as part of an exhibition piece.

She will be over lapping the pictures.
