Using "pieces" of old masters

I am creating a collage that has pieces of old master paintings in it. All the paintings that the pieces are taken from are 1880 or earlier. The collage is created from pieces that are cut and pasted from photographs of the old paintings on a Musuem web site.
As I understand the Bridgeman Library vs Coral decision, the photos of the original (public domain) paintings are not copyrighted. Is that correct?
