Artist specified[edit]

Artist unspecified[edit]

Q. Wang developed his painting style -- freeism by using free colors, free shapes, and free strokes to do his art works. The result is a free atmosphere, and a space of imagination. Not like others use their eyes to paint what they are seeing, or use their brain to paint what they are thinking, Q. Wang paint the feelings by heart. His paintings have no details, but have characters. Each of his painting is different with others. Technically, Q. Wang broke all the existing rules of painting, especialy he broke the bars between 2-Dimension and 3-Dimension paintings. His paintings are something between 2-Dimension and 3-Dimension or a combination. Q. Wang's painting is revolutionary. Most people don't understand it. Just like peoples don't understand Monet and Van Gogh at the time. Q. Wang has his own personal art gallery in Las Vegas, the most popular one.

Museums and exhibitions[edit]

Publishing companies[edit]

Fictional characters and concepts[edit]

Titles and storylines[edit]




  • ComicBookBin
  • Slipshine - publisher of sex-positive adult comics for over ten years now. Arguably the first successful pay site to focus entirely on original webcomics, and certainly the longest-running


  • Cradled paintings. The articles on "Panel painting" and "Transfer of panel paintings" should mention cradled paintings, but there should also be a separate, more exhaustive Wikipedia page about "Cradled paintings." Cradles are the grids of wood supporting panel paintings. I don't know, but I suppose some paintings may have had them since the Renassiance. But what happened later on--especially in the 19th century?--was the panels were split. (But not perhaps to the extent, to the thinness, discussed in "Transfer of panel paintings" when it mentions thin veneers of wood being pasted onto new panels.) The split panels--with 50%...75%?--of the wood removed were then attached in some fashion to the supporting "cradle," the grid I've described. I suppose the proponents of this outdated restoration technique liked the lighter weight of the resultant hacked-up panel, or thought it would be less likely to warp. This really should be discussed in an expert fashion on Wikipedia. I'm frankly shocked that there isn't a Wikipedia page on this.
  • Geesje Kwak (see Dutch Wikipedia article). Geesje Kwak was the model for George Hendrik Breitner gorgeous girl in a kimono series. There are good sources for her and Commons media images and I can upload some more from RKD as needed. Early example of interaction photography and painting, good sources as well and I shall copy this request to photography section here. If someone does a stub I can provide a translation of the Dutch article. My account User:RobvanderWaal was blocked as a sock of User:Rinpoche and I'm damned if I'm going to bother with a new one. But there are some things I would like to continue with, mainly late 19th century so-called Amsterdam Impressionism and auction prices, on IP as time permits. If someone does provide a stub, please put a message on my Talk page which I keep logged in to. Thank you. (talk) 17:27, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
