This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain in its source country for the following reason:

Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 70 years or less.


Dialog-warning.svg You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States. Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Jamaica has 95 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term. Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years and Honduras has 75 years, but they do implement the rule of the shorter term. Copyright may extend on works created by French who died for France in World War II (more information), Russians who served in the Eastern Front of World War II (known as the Great Patriotic War in Russia) and posthumously rehabilitated victims of Soviet repressions (more information).

It is also in the public domain in the United States for the following reason:

Public domain
This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1924.

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.

Documentationviewedithistorypurge
This documentation is transcluded from Template:PD-Art-two/doc.

This template is similar to {{PD-Art}} but allows you to specify two tags, one for the reason the work is public domain in the source country and one for the reason it is public domain in the United States. For example, if the work was published before 1924 and the author died at least 75 years ago, you would use:

{{PD-Art-two|PD-old-75|PD-US-expired}}

More examples

  • A photograph of a 1911 English work whose author died in 1925 may be tagged {{PD-Art-two|PD-old-70|PD-US-expired}}.
  • A photograph of a Canadian photograph created prior to 1949 may be tagged {{PD-Art-two|PD-Canada|PD-1996}}.

Where possible, prefer PD-US-expired to PD-1996, because it is simpler. If the work is not in the public domain in the US due to the URAA, do not use PD-Art-two; instead use {{PD-Art}} combined with {{Not-PD-US-URAA}}, like in this example:

  • An English work whose author died in 1935 may be tagged {{PD-Art|PD-old-70}} {{Not-PD-US-URAA}}

Usage

{{PD-Art-two |1= |2= }}
