Talk:100 Great Paintings

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Translation of this article from the German Wiki was requested, so it was done. However, the German article is largely about the German series which derived from the BBC series, so it contains a lot of material which doesn't directly apply to the BBC series.

One interesting aspect is that the names of the paintings in the German article where (naturally) in German, which means they had to be back-translated into English. Since the translator does not have the English books and never saw the series, the names of the paintings are not guaranteed to be the same names used in the BBC series and books. As much as possible, the translator looked up the paintings in Wikipedia and used the names found there. It is hoped that some later Wikipedian(s) will kindly fix the names to match those used in the series in the future.

In fact an archived version of this script is available at
But in the meantime someone deleted the whole reference to this item of a current affairs programme in 2007, and perhaps it really is eight years later hardly of interest anymore. Thus no attempt has been made to again insert the reference, which is still included in the German original of this article.
Also of little relevance appears to be nowadays a single production from 2004, thus I removed this sentence rather than fixing the translation error (the production was about, not from Werner Tübke).
And moved to parodies has been the reference to the test card piece ORF did in 1994. It clearly was ironic, and it seems to be of some fame. (talk) 11:45, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
