I've created a set of constellation art showing Lacaille's 1752
planisphere, which was the first to illustrate the new southern
constellations he created.

Cool! Where you get artwork for this sky culture?
The base image I used is the planisphere Lacaille published in 1752, in Mem de l'Ac.R. des Sc., 1752, page 592, plate 20 (Planisphere contenant les comprises entre le Pole Austral Constellations Celestes et le Tropique du Capricorne).
The high-resolution image was provided by Dr Ian Glass (who has just written a book about Lacaille).
The rest was just a LOT of Photoshop work :)
Sorry I don't understand - image has been provided by Dr. Ian Glass special for culture for Stellarium?
What is the license on this art?
Note that Dr. Ian Glass who would have to specifically make his rendition of the artwork available under an open-source license for it to be included in Stellarium. Including a special Stellarium-only permission is not allowed under FOSS licenses.
