Nymphenburg[edit]

The picture of the palace of Nymphenburg is very dark and does not show well the chinoiserie. Besides the lay out of the article became very complex, but I think, it looks better now and it is easier to edit. Taksen (talk) 21:56, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Definition[edit]

Where or what is the definition provided by the American Heritage Dictionary? I like to read it. By the way, your lay out is boring! Chinoiserie is mend to be spectacular. I think you are missing the point. There is enough room on the server for bigger pictures, thy are stored somewhere else. Dont be too careful. Taksen (talk) 06:59, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Rococo architecture.[edit]

Someone tried to drop a category, as it was not supported by the text, according to him. But the article tells us: "The popularity of chinoiserie peaked around the middle of the 18th century, when it was easily assimilated into rococo by the works of François Boucher." Then there are these pictures of Chinoiserie on buildings. How can we stop those people, who seem to have no particular knowledge on the subject? Taksen (talk) 17:59, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
