Editing of gallery[edit]

I have edited the gallery from over 70 images down to nine, believing that the more economical format looks better and distills Zurbaran's work to essentials. I have tried to choose some of his best works, searching for the higher quality photo images. All the remaining images, as is the case with many other artists, are viewable in the commons. Previously, the entire Zurbaran commons gallery was grafted onto the article.

There is no specific guideline as to size of gallery, as far as I know, so other editors are welcome to disagree, and revert my action. JNW 18:00, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Metzenmacher[edit]

The Metzenmacher 'trivia' is well worth deletion. Bigturtle 15:10, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

The Spanish edition is fuller[edit]

I corrected a mistaken reference to the (non-existent) Seville Museum in the original, to the Museo de las Bellas Artes Seville. But a quick look across at the Spanish language Wikipedia entry on Zurbarán shows it to be a great deal more comprehensive than the English, so I will try to add an appropriate note at the head of the entry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.154.115.28 (talk) 22:32, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Francisco ZurbaránFrancisco de Zurbarán — It's the more common form of his name, as seen at the Spanish Wiki and in Google-Book and -Scholar searches, as well as the form of his name we use in the first line. Srnec (talk) 17:35, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Died in poverty[edit]

I checked a couple of monographs on Zurbaran including the catalog of a 1987 retrospective at the MMA in NYC, and the consensus seems to be that this is a myth; an inventory of his belongings after his death suggests that he was reasonably well off, comparable to Murillo or Goya. Maybe somebody more motivated than myself could make an edit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.165.95.66 (talk) 18:48, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
