S-curves as distinct from Baroque and Rococo applications thereof[edit]

I think the last paragraph of this article is anachronous. Hogarth was writing in a context of Baroque/Rococco art (his professional career spanned the transistion between high Baroque and Rococco), so saying that his conception of the line of beauty stands in opposition to the sinuous compositions of Baroque and Rococco composition (as if that is somehow a separate and degenerate conception) seems like a contradictory and modernist insertion. --♦♦♦Vlmastra♦♦♦ (talk) 20:05, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

William de Bolgne?[edit]

Neither the author William de Bolgne nor the book 'Run from the Seven seas' has any article in wikipedia - and google does not give any clue to who this is either. Can anyone confirm that the author and the book exists? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Animus00 (talkcontribs) 08:01, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
