Talk:Maxim's Art Nouveau "Collection 1900"
|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Maxim's Art Nouveau "Collection 1900" article.
This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject.
This article on a little-known, very interesting museum is a good beginning but it would benefit from being enlarged and rewritten in a more factual and encyclopedic style. An improved Wikipedia article on this museum is sorely needed---browsing around World Wide Web, I could only find the place's official website, and some rather informal travelers' reviews, not even a review by a major newspaper, at least not in English. More information about the history would help, for example, when did the museum open to the public? More pictures would help. I visited the place today and the guide allowed photography, so it should be possible to find or make a few public-domain pictures. Some parts of the existing article seemed unclear, and/or should be supported by more secondary sources. For example the suggestive term "love chambers" does not make clear what connection the upstairs rooms, and the furniture now displayed in them, may have had with the Belle Epoque courtesans who helped make Maxim's famous.CharlesHBennett (talk) 22:29, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
