They seem to be links to businesses selling reproductions of public domain art as gifts. As such, I find them suspiciously like advertising. If there's a consensus that they should be restored to the article, please do so. Smerdis of Tlön 19:42, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

Influence on Tolkien[edit]

I've slapped a fact-tag on this line: "The paintings are believed by some to have influenced the young J.R.R. Tolkien, then growing up in Birmingham." This seems like it ought to be true, but "believed by some" is pretty much weasel-wording, and I cannot find any supporting note in the indexes of Carpenter, Shippey, or Hammond & Scull, which is where I would expect to find such a comment. - PKM (talk) 01:22, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

(Copied from my talk page) I think the connection is a general one that includes William Morris. See here. Hope that helps. Carcharoth (talk) 07:55, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

GA[edit]

I am nominating this article for GA. - PKM (talk) 05:11, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Baronetcy[edit]

Re the new info and associated fact-tag ("withering" contempt) I am sure I have multiple sources for that, will check. - PKM (talk) 19:04, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Tweaked to wording I can back up with citations. - PKM (talk) 01:47, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Technique?[edit]

Came here to read up on his oils technique - it looks to me like liquid glazes over a strong underpainting (both for flesh and fabrics) but couldn't find anything in the article on it? Is it simply that we don't know how he painted?
