Art is art. If you want a list of visual art please call it visual art. Hyacinth 21:42, 16 Aug 2004 (UTC)

I would, but it is a similar problem to Category:Art (as opposed to Category:Arts) which arguably should also be moved to Visual Art. -- Solipsist 10:34, 17 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Great to hear, now what is the easiest way to move categories?Hyacinth 19:55, 17 Aug 2004 (UTC)
I don't think there is an easy way (unless a sysop can help). I would recommend starting by canvassing support at Category talk:Art -- Solipsist 20:43, 17 Aug 2004 (UTC)
You might also want to coordinate with User:Pethan and User:Spinster who are doing a fair bit of categorisation in the Arts and related subjects. -- Solipsist 08:31, 18 Aug 2004 (UTC)

gettings a full list[edit]

I'm working first on getting a good list together, there were several pages which sort of listed some movements. Extremely confusing. I'm first consolidating the list here in Art movements. Clubmarx 18:25, Nov 27, 2004 (UTC)


This is already part of Cat:aesthetics via Cat:Arts - there is no point duplicating it at a level further down, when this cat is not more closely related to Aesthetics than tons of other sub-cats of Cat:Arts. This just creates category clutter and confuses people. I think you need to read the categorization guidelines. Johnbod 04:29, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

forcing some categories to the front[edit]

Usually, this isn't done for "important" categories and not to order them. I've seen categories like lists and facets (Foo by country, Foo by genre) moved to the front. I think these are ordering in info boxes, which seems to be the proper place for that type of ordering.

Any objection if I remove this? Clubmarx 23:25, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

  • i'm not sure - it seems useful to me, though perhaps less so since I have just removed some duplicate head & sub-cat inclusions, so there are fewer cats altogether now. If it was just me I'd leave it, but if you feel strongly .... Johnbod 03:02, 11 November 2007 (UTC)


please, add Maximalism to the list. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:22, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
