There should be an image of him as he looked during his years as an active dancer. There is a link that could be used in the article. -- (talk) 14:25, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Good point. I uploaded and added that image to the article. Hemmingsen 15:44, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I wish I knew how to do that (I suggested something similar in the article of Elisabeth Olin). -- (talk) 19:56, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
You're welcome. I've uploaded and added that other image as well. The technical aspects of uploading is a manageable obstacle, but having to deal with international copyright law can be quite tricky sometimes. A couple of points that may or may not be helpful:
A sufficiently old drawing or engraving or something similar or anything directly from a sufficiently old book will normally be in public domain everywhere and should be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons (via commons:Commons:Upload) where the image will be accessible from all wikipedias. The uploading guide will provide you with a form with fields for the necessary information (description, source and so on) and "PD-Old" or "Author died more than 70 years ago" will be the appropriate license.
Images that are based on old paintings are somewhat trickier as those will usually be photographs and some countries will give copyright protection to the photograph regardless of how old the original painting is. commons:Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag has some advice on which countries that is (the Scandinavian ones are among them). If you are dealing with for example an image based on a Scandinavian painting it will therefore likely be protected in its country of origin which makes it banned from being uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, but fortunately it won't be protected in the United States and we can upload the image to English Wikipedia (by using Wikipedia:Upload. The correct license will then usually be "PD-Art" or "Photo of a two-dimensional work whose author died more than 100 years ago.
But anyway, you're are certainly welcome to ask me for help again another time. Hemmingsen 18:06, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
Thank you very much! I may very well do that. -- (talk) 12:18, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
