Her birth date[edit]

Although there are many web sites that give her birth date as September 11, there are more that give it as August 29 (OS), for example, these: [1], [2] and [3]. This one gives both [4], but clearly one is in error, because the difference between the two calendars in the nineteenth century was 12 days. I suspect there was an initial miscalculation of the NS date, based on the 13-day difference in the twentieth century, and many subsequent articles used that without rechecking.

Public domain[edit]

Her work passes into the public domain on 1 January 2009, the beginning of the first full year, 70 years after her death. Ty 05:39, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Werefkin and Jawlensky[edit]

The article stated that Jawlensky desired to make Werefkin his protégé. I guess somebody misunderstood the word protégé, since Werefkin was the mentor, not Jawlensky. I already corrected this. But there is the question of the desiring: Did really Jawlensky seek out Werefkin? -- Tomdo08 (talk) 07:30, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
