Previous comment[edit]

No mention of John Atkinson Grimshaw? Whistler himself acknowledged Grimshaw as the father of the Nocturne.

Just a side comment about this - if anyone reads this and wonders about it: Nocturnes are not a movement but a term which could mean: 1) a night painting (generally), or 2) Whistlers approach to painted a veiled depiction. So, there's no "father" of nocturnes.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:41, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Article likely needs more help[edit]

I'm still not sure how appropriate the content and selection of images are, though. Any direction would be great!--CaroleHenson (talk) 09:27, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Copy paste?[edit]

I had added this tag, but it may be that it's the reverse - that the information in the e-book came from WP. {{Copy paste|url=http://books.google.com/books?id=yGwiT6nhbMcC&pg=PT13|date=August 2012}}

I thought I'd post it here, though, to scope it out.--CaroleHenson (talk) 09:44, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
