Ion Theodorescu-Sion[edit]

Scout, 1917 oil painting

  • ... that, six years after shocking the public with his primitivist paintings, Ion Theodorescu-Sion became Romania's official World War I artist (work sample pictured)?
  • Reviewed: Fig Island
  • Comment: Please consider this for Dec 1, Romania's national holiday. Also note: article and commons reveal many more quality samples of Sion's work. I chose this one because it is war-themed (and thus particularly connected with the December 1 context, which basically celebrates Romania's moral victory in WW1). But, should you dislike this option, you might easily chose a different one - in which case, I might suggest File:Ion Theodorescu-Sion - Tarani din Abrud.jpg, for both its Romanian theme and its quality.

  • Pictogram voting keep.svg Romanian sources AGF. Well written and detailed! I understand your comment but think that his self portrait is more convincing small size than the warrier. I also suggest that you have the wording of the article a little closer to that in the hook, or the other way round, proposing

Self portrait

ALT1: ... that, six years after shocking the public with his primitivist paintings in 1910, Ion Theodorescu-Sion (self portrait pictured) was employed to depict the Romanian Armed Forces in action? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 23:52, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
That's fine by me. I thought about one of his war paintings because it would really link the hook and picture to the events commemorated on December 1, or one of his "peasants in costume" ones because it shows something unmistakably Romanian, but any other option that gets the public's approval is also okay by me. Thanks, Gerda. Dahn (talk) 00:17, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
