English: Portrait of Thomas Johnson (governor) by Charles Willson Peale in the Maryland State Archives, on display at Government House, Annapolis. The portrait was engraved by Joseph Ives Pease and published in c. 1840.
[1] A copy of this portrait has been created and given to the City of Philadelphia for public display (hence published) in 1874.[2] Johnson's visage in Peale's portrait was copied from the Johnson's family portrait (also painted by Peale). The family painting has been published in several works, such as p. 488 of The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine[3] and p. 306 of Side-lights on Maryland History.[4]

Public domain
This media file is in the public domain in the United States. This applies to U.S. works where the copyright has expired, often because its first publication occurred prior to January 1, 1924. See this page for further explanation.

United States
This image might not be in the public domain outside of the United States; this especially applies in the countries and areas that do not apply the rule of the shorter term for US works, such as Canada, Mainland China (not Hong Kong or Macao), Germany, Mexico, and Switzerland. The creator and year of publication are essential information and must be provided. See Wikipedia:Public domain and Wikipedia:Copyrights for more details.
The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
