Jules Pascin[edit]

I had started to c/e this article yesterday but note that you have been working on it so will leave it be. I'm curious why you felt it necessary to delete the info box I'd added. These are standard in any biographical and many other articles in different subject areas. They are certainly not "unnecessary".Twofingered Typist (talk) 13:26, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Infoboxes are often problematical in biographical articles, particularly in articles about people in the arts, because they tend to oversimplify the complex and to mislead by undue emphasis. When I said the infobox was unnecessary I was paraphrasing what it says at MOS:INFOBOX: "The use of infoboxes is neither required nor prohibited for any article". The ib you added had numerous problems great and small. For example, although his nationality was Bulgarian, that's not the whole story. ULAN describes him as an "American and Bulgarian painter"; The first line of Oxford Art Online's Pascin article defines him as an "American painter, draughtsman, and printmaker of Bulgarian birth, active in France." Wikipedia's article explains all of this in the lead sentences; the ib was giving a too-simple account. Pascin's education was in Vienna, where he attended the academy, and in Moritz Heymann's school in Munich; later in Paris he attended various academies including Colarossi's. Pascin is not strongly identified with any movement. There were also problems with WP:ENGVAR and date format which would have needed fixing; as I considered making the fixes I decided it was just as well to remove it entirely.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Alfred Hitchcock[edit]

Hi Ewulp,

Please see my comments at Talk on Alfred Hitchcock. I'd appreciate discussing them with you there. Thanks. X4n6 (talk) 10:17, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Is it 20 or 21[edit]

Your edit at Bosch and the issue if it is "around 25 paintings" or if it should say "20 or 21 paintings". The first one sounds like a guess, while the second one sounds like the editor has given this more precise thought. Changing to this wording may be better than either your or my previous edit. Cheers. Fountains-of-Paris (talk) 16:56, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Recently, I took a closer look at the sibling page for Bosch on his paintings and a separate gallery for his drawings. The current articles containing the galleries of Bosch painting appears to be missing all of the dates for the various painting at List of paintings by Hieronymus Bosch and I was wondering if you might have the interest to possibly fill any of them in as a start to organizing things there. Is this something which might be possible for you when time allows? Fountains-of-Paris (talk) 16:32, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
Possibly; would need to research. Ewulp (talk) 01:11, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
I could not tell if its time for a Wikibreak for you. If you return soon to Bosch possibly you might be able to look at Hieronymus Bosch drawings which does not have the benefit of the dating of drawings which were usefully added to his page for his paintings. It is the five hundred year commemoration for Bosch now and perhaps you could add the dates at some time in the future for his drawings page, if time allows, which looks quite random at this time. Cheers. Fountains-of-Paris (talk) 16:37, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Pandora's Box (1929 film)[edit]

You're fortunate I think! Reger is one of my favorite composers. Ewulp (talk) 22:59, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Guernica (Picasso), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Juan Larrea (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

If it is a statue by Gerome, then please fix the caption accordingly. Don't leave it unsaid. Do you know this statue? Isambard Kingdom (talk) 01:30, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

It's in the Musée d'Orsay as seen here. Ewulp (talk) 03:10, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Quote marks and punctuation.[edit]

Thanks for the heads up on the style manual for this absolutely trivial issue (one that, nonetheless, I thought I was fixing). My mistake. Isambard Kingdom (talk) 00:51, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Max Reger[edit]

I may have a language difficulty. Max Reger was the composer, pianist etc, - he performed, composed, published as Max Reger, not as the load of birthnames. - He was a bit unconventional, so the conventional order may be not the right thing to do for him ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:37, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Please see MOS:BIRTHNAME: "Many cultures have a tradition of not using the full name of a person in everyday reference, but the article should start with the complete version"; examples of proper style are given there (Fidel Castro etc.). Also see Hugo Wolf, Groucho Marx, Walt Disney, Kiki of Montparnasse, other similar cases. There's no reason to make an exception here. Ewulp (talk) 02:21, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
