blog link[edit]

i removed this ext link which was blocking editing. However a number of editors are asking for it to be whitelisted, so maybe it can be restored later. http://oseculoprodigiosoDOTblogspotDOTcom/2005/10/de-stael-nicholas-arte-abstracta.html Johnbod 08:57, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

References and Organization[edit]

The interview that is referenced in regards to the artist's influencers does not include Octavio Paz in the dialogue. There is a series of works that were created by Paz and Motherwell that could be examined here. Another issue can be found in the last paragraph of the article which is word-for-word plagiarized from the source. In regards to the organization of the article, I think it would be beneficial to split up the main two paragraphs into subcategories that perhaps highlight education, Surrealism, selected works, and collaborations in order to create a more balanced and organized article.

Great observations, especially since the section on education ends, and the following section begins: "In 1940, Motherwell moved to New York to study at Columbia University..." Don't forget, you can also use sub-sections to further break up long articles and guide readers. Tip: it would be helpful to future users if these comments were themselves broken up in such a fashion (so that, for example, the plagiarism note followed the previous comment above about copyright violations). Feel free to add as many sections as you want! Aolivex (talk) 19:46, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

"coined the term New York School"[edit]

This statement was in the lede, unsourced. Motherwell isn't even mentioned in the entry about the New York school. If anyone has a reliable source (or its mentioned in the article) it should be put back in. Bangabandhu (talk) 07:27, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
