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 for the following reason:
Public domain

The author died in 1922, so 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 80 years or less.

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, but it does implement the rule of the shorter term.
