The Doris Stock (whoever she is) Mozart portrait is a poor, b&w image that does not at all convey the typical look of a silverpoint drawing. The Holbein is good; the Hunt is almost illegible (but still more characteristic than the Stock). The Durer mentioned in the text would be a good image, or one of Leonardo's. Not sure I know how to insert a photo.Albiart (talk) 17:03, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

  • It is highly improbable that this portrait had been drawn in silverpoint. This is more probably charcoal or pastel technique. Too strong blacks, thick lines, large paper-textured areas; and (provided it is not a b&w copy) the hue is wrong... It could have been sketched in silverpoint, but finished in charcoal, but not entirely drawn in metalpoint. IMO description is misleading. Mulat (talk) 16:25, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

The article doesn't seem to convey any information on the technical concept of silverpoint. There isn't any real information on what silverpoint is. (talk) 06:18, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
