Paint[edit]

L'amour[edit]

Apparently, the painting is called Première rêverie in French. Or, at least, in this biography and the French list of his works they call it that. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 13:59, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

It would be so much easier if they would stick to just one name ... Would it be worth including a few lines about Bougereau as 'Background' to help the article look a bit better? I was just flicking through some of the articles on his other paintings and this turns out to be a copy paste from the one and only ref used! As it's only a few sentences, I'm just going to try to fix it. SagaciousPhil - Chat 14:14, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Ah! That would be too easy. We sinners (well, I the sinner) must repent. Yes, that would be good. What was Bouguereau doing at the time? Hmm... gotta find a decent source. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 14:18, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
Got a decent article up. To get much more we'd need his catalogue raisonne, and I am not spending $400 on a book I'll use once. Of course, if you've got access to this, that would be great. I can't preview it from here. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 14:57, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
Amazon is letting me see some pages on its 'Look inside' feature - but, of course, not the ones I need! Kicks chair and curses SagaciousPhil - Chat 15:09, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Curse them! Oh well, at least we've got a good enough article to nom now. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 15:11, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Yes, it looks much better now. I'll try to see if I can trick Amazon into letting me see the pages I need tomorrow SagaciousPhil - Chat 15:32, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Have you ever tried proxying into the US servers for GBooks and Amazon? I do it from time to time. - Sitush (talk) 20:04, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

American feminists v British females?[edit]

In fact, as I am a British female (yes, I know all the "vocal American feminists" will no doubt spit, hiss and create the usual drama at this: "British" and "female" appear to equate to "non entity" and/or "idiot" or of "no importance", "not worthy of any consideration" as far as the vociferous, vocal few are concerned.)[1] [The edit summary is along the same lines.]

Any diffs actually showing that any American women Wikipedia editors have actually said or implied these things? Lightbreather (talk) 18:23, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Why don't you go looking for them yourself Lightbreather; or better still, drop this unnecessary fishing expedition and get on with improving the encyclopaedia. CassiantoTalk 19:06, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
