Great article....[edit]

Virgin of Chancellor Rolin

...but the pictures are poorly laid out. The section "Patronage" Needs this image. I have removed the colour cast from the York project file. It is still not as good as it could be. I'll be back. Amandajm (talk) 03:30, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

By all means Amanda. I would appreciate your input, espically. Ceoil (talk) 23:10, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Burgundian Netherlands[edit]

According to the Burgundian Netherlands article, that state was disestablished in 1482. According to this article, however, Early Netherlandish painters were active in the Burgundian Netherlands until the 16th century. Should this article instead read "Burgundian and Habsburg Netherlands"? Neelix (talk) 14:51, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes, clarified now. Ceoil (talk) 23:05, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Exposition des primitifs flamands à Bruges[edit]

I have created an article on the 1902 Exposition des primitifs flamands à Bruges. Any help, additions, corrections, ... are more than welcome. It has slightly overwhelmed me, so I probably have missed or neglected some important aspects (and kept some stupid errors). It also contains some interesting redlinks. Fram (talk) 14:40, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Amazing work! Johnbod (talk) 15:27, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks (blush). Fram (talk) 19:31, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
It's fantastic! It's a page we needed and I thought of tackling it, but this is much more ambitious than anything I conceived. Really excellent job. I think with some work it could easily become a featured list. I do have some material sandboxed here (in the Chapuis section) which may or may not be helpful, but please use it if it's helpful. Also I've started Saint John Altarpiece (Memling), fyi. Haven't decided whether or not to change to St. John Altarpiece (Memling) so suggestions welcome. Victoria (tk) 23:50, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
"St John" (no period) I think. We only use "St." for American place names that have it. Johnbod (talk) 02:53, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I think most of it is covered in the article, although it could go to greater detail on some aspects. I'll probably write an article on Weale sometime soon. Fram (talk) 08:12, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Image larger than thumb.[edit]

Per WP:IG:

Images are typically interspersed individually throughout an article near the relevant text (see WP:MOSIMAGES). However, the use of a gallery section may be appropriate in some Wikipedia articles if a collection of images can illustrate aspects of a subject that cannot be easily or adequately described by text or individual images. The images in the gallery collectively must have encyclopedic value and add to the reader's understanding of the subject.

  • Image use policy say: Sometimes a picture may benefit from a size other than the default; see the Manual of Style for guidance.

  • Manual of style: **As a general rule, images should not be set to a larger fixed size than the 220px default (users can adjust this in their preferences). 'If an exception to the general rule is warranted', forcing an image size to be either larger or smaller than the 220px default is done by placing a parameter in the image coding.

  • The exception from the general rule is most art and art related articles that they do fall into this cathegory, and they are this exception to the general rule .

Hafspajen (talk) 08:06, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Note that the default is about to be changed to 300px, which will change all this. That was in fact supposed to happen last week, but apparently has been delayed for technical reasons. Not sure what your point is anyway. Johnbod (talk) 12:12, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Nor me. What? Ceoil (talk) 13:15, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Relates to this I expect. Johnbod (talk) 13:37, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, Johnbod and Ceoil - user moving around, removing galleries and thumb-ing down pics. Reverted it. Hafspajen (talk) 17:28, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Beautiful, beautiful images in this article[edit]

Just happened to come across this page and was stunned at its beauty. The images are wonderfully laid out. The lack of page clutter allows the images to shine. Bravo! Parabolooidal (talk) 17:21, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

They mostly look too small to me, I must say. Johnbod (talk) 19:24, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
I didn't really know how to respond to any of this so decided not to. Then this caught my eye on my overworked watchlist yesterday. fwiw. I think this is a thread we could maybe just close. Or something. I like the way the images are because this is an overview article and the images don't overwhelm, whereas I prefer to see detail images on articles about single paintings. The other problem, as noted in the thread above, is that lots of people have been through resizing and moving images. So, I guess I said something after all!

"Speech ballon"?[edit]

Can the dialogue represented in File:The Braque Triptych interior.jpg really be called "speech balloons", rather than speech scrolls? The terms certainly overlap, but my gut feeling is this falls outside the area of overlap. Curly Turkey ¡gobble! 01:56, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

No, in fact neither of these in this case. Gone with "... for the floating "speech" inscriptions,...". Strictly banderole is the usual term for the speech scroll ones that look as though they are on strips of parchment. Johnbod (talk) 02:16, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Should the relation not be noted? Curly Turkey ¡gobble! 02:56, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
How do you mean? Johnbod (talk) 08:02, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
