I don´t know how long Church lived on his farm in Hudson, but why is Olana, the Persian-style house Church built himself in Hudson not mentioned?
I'm deleting the statement that what ever i do what i want Church was a "surrealist" -- while I'm no art expert, this one seems to me to be flat wrong. Anyone who actually knows the subject, please feel free to correct me. JamesMLane 03:18, 14 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Shouldn't Heart of the Andes be pictured here, since it's mentioned in the article and was also a very important work in Church's career (it came before "Twilight" and "The Icebergs")? I'm going to see if I can add it. 18.104.22.168 02:30, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
I'm a bit concerned about the opening sentences, in which the following quote is given "always concerned with including a spiritual dimension in his works" but which, as far as I know is only a quote from a paper about Church (one, it seems, not in English, even). My understanding is that Church left almost no, or very very few, written records, so I think this is not a quote from Church himself (although I would be happy to be corrected). More generally, do we really need to quote anybody other than Church in the opening sentences of his own biographical page? It doesn't seem appropriate to me. Just my thoughts.

I agree with you ... the quote in the opening paragraph does not seem right there. That entire sentence would be better placed into the 'Style' section. Xenxax (talk) 16:02, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
I tried to fix things up. Please consider the new content. Sincerely and thank you, DoctorTerrella (talk) 17:39, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
The first paragraph is much improved in my opinion, but ... am only one voice of many on Wikipedia. Xenxax (talk) 20:48, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, @Modernist , but I disagree with your placement of the Heart of the Andes. @Hohum moved it to a section of the essay that relates to the painting. Andes is also generally considered to be one of Church's most important works, so it seems sensible that it have a larger size in the presentation of paintings shown in this article. Please revert to the what Hohum had done, and which I think is sensible. Just my opinion. I'm sure that we all admire Church's work.

My latest edit tries organise the images so that there is no crashing into the gallery at wide resolutions, and so that the images stay in their sections at most widths. (Hohum@) 01:10, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
