Question[edit]

This article like Ellsworth Kelly, Arthur Dove, John Steuart Curry, seems to have been largely rewritten (copied?) by User:Stonebm on April 1st - I hope not, from other sources within the last three days or four days (March 30-April 2) all by new editors who have essentially only edited one or two other pages. - Seems strange to me. I suspect there are more articles, like these but I haven't seen them. Like the others I will try to make some changes. Modernist (talk) 22:45, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Just a little note: several items, such as "Why not use the L," have been misspelled. I believe the title should be "Why not use the El?"—referring, of course, to NYC's El trains, the subject of the painting.206.72.3.224 (talk) 17:01, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Response That's what Marsh called the painting: "Why not use the L," [1] and it is the artist's perogative to title his work as he or she wishes/regardless of correct or incorrect spelling....Modernist (talk) 17:39, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
