This image is a faithful reproduction of a two-dimensional work of art and thus not copyrightable in itself in the U.S. as per Bridgeman Art Library v. Corel Corp.; the same is also true in many other countries. The original two-dimensional work shown in this image is free content because: This image (or other media file) is in the public domain 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" PDFfrom the U.S. Copyright Office. Works published before 1923 are now in the public domain

This inage may however not be in the public domain in countries that figure copyright from the date of death of the artist (post mortem auctoris), since the artist is listed as unknown, and that most commonly runs for a period of 50 to 70 years from December 31st of that date. If your use will be outside the United States please check your local law.
