Hi. I am new here and did a search but didnt find a good answer to my question. What are the legal issues (if any) for using fine art (example: Mona Lisa) ,logos (of defunct companies) or poster/ pamphlet images from the 19th and early 20th century? Any input will be appreciated.

If it predates the 20s you're good to go (as far as copyright goes that is - trademark could still be an issue, but rarely). After that, it's a big confusing mess thanks to a patchwork of terribly short sighted copyright laws. Defunct companies might still technically exist and have maintained their trademark.
