These images (or other media files) are in the public domain because their 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. Works published before 1923 and 1863, are now in the public domain. 

This image is also in the public domain in countries that figure copyright from the date of death of the artist (post mortem auctoris), in this case, Theodor Aman (1831–1891), and that most commonly runs for a period of 50 to 70 years from the last day of that year. +sookie tex
