Carousel Horses



Carousel Horses from The Central Park Carousel. New York City, New York. One of the country's largest merry-go-rounds, it features fifty-eight hand-carved, brightly caparisoned horses and two ornate chariots. Wonderful examples of folk art, they were made by Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein in 1908.

The original three-dimensional work shown in this image is free content because its copyright has expired. This applies to the United States, where Works published prior to 1978 were copyright protected for a maximum of 75 years. See Circular 1 "COPYRIGHT BASICS" PDF from the U.S. Copyright Office. Works published before 1923 are now in the public domain.

These 3-D works may however not be in the public domain in countries that figure copyright from the date of death of the artist (post mortem auctoris), in this case Solomon Stein (1882–1937) and Harry Goldstein (1867–1945, and that most commonly runs for a period of 50 to 70 years from that date.
