United States

The two-dimensional reproduction of this artistic work located in the United States is not subject to United States copyright law because its subject was published in the United States before 1978 without a copyright notice, which puts the work in the public domain.

It is the position of the Commons community that, barring unusual attempts by the author to disallow photography (or other attempts to reproduce the work), it was considered published as soon as it was placed in the public square, according to prevalent US common law interpretation of the time. For more information, see Commons:Freedom of panorama#United_States and the circular Towards a Functional Definition of Publication in Copyright Law.
