POV?

"but Jordaens is wanting in dignity of conception, and is inferior in choice of forms, in the character of his heads, and in correctness of drawing. Not seldom he sins against good taste, and in some of his humorous pieces the coarseness is only atoned for by the animation."

This seems like an obvious statement of opinion, and the end of that second sentence doesn't even make any sense.

It is the general tone of the 1911 Britannica, a anglo-protestant classicist diatribe against catholic baroque in general. Ruskin still ruled.CARAVAGGISTI 16:20, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

waterscilder[edit]

Is waterscilder really the title or just a misspelling which got repeated. Google gives just 4 results for "waterscilder" all connected to jordaens. And it appears to have originated from a french document possibly misspelling the dutch word nl:schilderen. The problem of french speakers with the "schi" sound is well documented, for example with schild en vriend a well known Shibboleth. there are several sources that list it as "waterschilder" for example [1] Pinfix (talk) 10:40, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
