Español: Walt Whitman

This image was made in 1887 in New York, by photographer George C. Cox. The image is said to have been Whitman's favorite from the Cox photo-session; there were about seven images made at that time. Whitman so admired this image that he even sent a copy to the poet Tennyson in England.

Currently vended commercially, in a format suitable for magazine & book reproduction, by picture library Corbis. The image was apparently originally in the collection of Charles E. Feinberg, and then entered the collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art under curator John Szarkowski. Walt Whitman died in 1892 and the photographer George C. Cox died in 1903. This picture is therefore in the public domain by virtue of the author being dead for more than 100 years.


This image is a faithful reproduction of a two-dimensional work of art and thus not copyrightable in itself in the U.S. as per Bridgeman Art Library v. Corel Corp.; the same is also true in many other countries, including Germany.
The original two-dimensional work shown in this image is free content because:
Public domain This image (or other media file) is in the public domain because its copyright has expired.

This applies to the United States, Canada, the European Union and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 70 years.
