This is a faithful photographic reproduction of an original two-dimensional work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain This image (or other media file) is in the public domain because its copyright has expired.

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

Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years, Soviet Union has 74 years for some authors. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term.

This file has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights.

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain, and that claims to the contrary represent an assault on the very concept of a public domain". For details, see Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag.
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain.

Sitter Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895), Biologist and science educationist. Sitter in 21 portraits.

Artist Marian Collier (née Huxley) (1859-1887), Painter; first wife of John Collier. Artist of 6 portraits, Sitter in 1 portrait.

A key figure in Victorian scientific life, Thomas Henry Huxley made important discoveries in several branches of biology. He was a vigorous champion of Darwin and tended to antagonise moderate opinion by his abrasive style of speaking. Huxley worked tirelessly to improve scientific education and served on many Royal Commissions on education and public health. This portrait of him is by his daughter Marian who married the artist John Collier in 1879. Marion Collier studied at the Slade and, in the early 1880s, exhibited works at the Royal Academy and the Grosvenor Gallery. After the birth of a daughter the artist suffered from severe depression and in 1887 she caught pneumonia and died.
