Dates of birth and death[edit]

For the fr:Richard Parkes Bonington, I'm using the french translation of the Noon's catalogue (1990) Patrick: Richard Parkes Bonington "On the Pleasure of Painting", which seems to be a serious monography of RPB (lots of references and details).

In my book (Chronology's page) : Birth of RPB : October 25, 1802 - Death : September 23, 1828. (In the current version : December 25, 1802 - September 28, 1828)

Which reference was used for the current version of the birth/death dates ? Are there new references in the catalogue of the 2002 Nottingham Castle's exhibition ? --Ironie 00:00, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

  • I'm going with your recognition of Noon's book, and reverting the dates. I assume what you found was old vandalism--if not, someone will hopefully furnish a correction, with cite. JNW 00:22, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
