Orphaned non-free image File:Photo of May Vale.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Photo of May Vale.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:35, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Katharine Cameron vs. Katherine Cameron[edit]

Not once in any book she illustrated was she listed as "Katherine". She signed her name "Kate" most of the time in correspondence. The Tate calls her "Katharine" <http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artists/katharine-cameron-852>

So, which is it and sources please.

Thank you.

Free images should be uploaded to Commons[edit]

Just a helpful reminder, for images like File:Photo of Aileen Rose Dent.jpg, which is derived from this image on Commons, it's best to keep all such images on Wikimedia Commons, as long as they are still Free to use. Having images on Commons allows them to be seen and used by a greater number of projects, as well as more efficient sorting, curation, and cross-project management. The only reasons to upload images "locally" (i.e. English Wikipedia) would be fair-use, non-free images, per Non-free content (Commons cannot host fair-use images), or images that are public domain in the U.S. but not their country of origin (see Commons:Licensing, and an example here). The Move-to-Commons assistant is a useful tool to transfer free images from Wikipedia to Commons. Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers! --Animalparty! (talk) 03:17, 16 April 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:Jean Burns portrait painted by Aileen Dent.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The file File:Jean Burns portrait painted by Aileen Dent.jpg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No matter who took the photograph, the original painting is still in copyright. The painting was made in 1939 by Aileen Dent (1890–1978). Australian copyright applies for 70 years post death of creator (unless they died before 1955), excepting photographs taken before 1955 (per PD-Australia)

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. --Animalparty!

Agnès Lefort[edit]

Hi - I noticed that you replaced an ill link to the French Wikipedia article on Joseph Saint-Charles by a direct link to the French article from the Agnès Lefort article. The advantage of the ill link is that it provides a red link for a potential new English article about Joseph Saint-Charles as well as linking to the corresponding French article. If an English article is created, then the link to the French article will go away automatically and only a link to the English article will appear. This is discussed at Help:Interlanguage links#Inline links. Sorry if I am repeating something that was already clear to you. --Big_iron (talk) 13:21, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Big iron: Nope, I didn't know the thinking behind the way you linked to Joseph Saint-Charles. Thanks for the guidance! WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 17:36, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

File:Ethel Mohamed, Me at the Renwick, 1978.jpg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 20:06, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Photo of Buffie Johnson.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Photo of Buffie Johnson.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described in section F6 of the criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 18:17, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi @ShakespeareFan00:. I think I've got the correct rationale now listed. I don't even know how I could have uploaded it without that info. I am pretty sure it is a unique situation. Thanks! WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 19:42, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

The Woman's Building (Chicago)[edit]

A reference would be good for your recent edit there. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 23:38, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

As far as I can tell from Weinman's "The Fair Women" the World's Congress of Representative Women never met in the Woman's Building. Carptrash (talk) 23:50, 25 June 2018 (UTC)
Hi Carptrash I was unaware that "See also"s needed a citation. I wrote "held at the Fair in May 1893'. If you feel the link to World's Congress of Representative Women should not be listed under the heading "See also" please delete it, but I think readers reading about the Woman's Building would be interested in reading about the World's Congress of Representative Women too. Best WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 00:07, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
No, I think you are right about the citation. And the link. As long as it does not suggest hat the Congress was held in the building. Carptrash (talk) 00:47, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Carptrash. Meanwhile on the Talk:The Woman's Building (Chicago)page, Carbon Caryatid provided a link to the publication The Congress of Women, Held in the Woman's Building. So, Chapter XX of "The Fair Women" covers various congresses throughout the Fair. Any takers on sorting it out and and expanding? Or at least a consensus on which page/article the the external link to the digitized version of the pamphlet should go (World's Congress of Representative Women v. The Woman's Building? WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 15:21, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
I have my copy open to page 523 and have this site [1] also open. However I am not feeling my best and have to go get my dog's hair all cut off shortly, so am not sure quite what I'll accomplish. I am trying. I am not sure that the World's Congress of Representative Women' is the same thing as the World's Congress of Women' and until that is clear in my mind . . . ..well my mind won't be clear. Carptrash (talk) 15:36, 26 June 2018 (UTC) Carptrash (talk) 15:32, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for putting this on your to-think-about list Carptrash. I am trying to untie the Gordian Knot of which women artists were exhibited at the Woman's Building v. the Palace of Fine Arts. It makes my head hurt. The congresses looks to be the same type of situation. I am taking my time, trying not to get too frustrated. I was pretty surprised that there wasn't an existing page for The Woman's Building and it took me about 6 months to get my slim article ready for posting. And much of that time was spent thinking (aside from getting distracted by the virtual WiR edit-a-thons). Feel better soon. Best WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 16:39, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
I have been combing Revisiting the White City: American Art at the 1893 World's Fair looking for that same information and am finding it frustrating going. Which is to say, "Zip useful info." However I have been interested in this for a while, I started the Alice Rideout article half a decade ago and am glad to have a co-editor to encourage me. My illness is an acute (and for me, rare) case of alcohol poisoning so I'll pull out just fine. I have several 1893 publication on the fair that are not well indexed but which might shed some light on who did what, where. Weinman has a discussion about women sculptors who did not want to be separated from the males (the term "sculptress" get dropped shortly there after - though will still surface occasionally) that I think will be useful. Carptrash (talk) 17:23, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Small world Carptrash, I added an infobox to Alice Rideout when I was just starting on Wikipedia in March 1917! It sparked my interest in the Woman's Building. To clear my head, I am going to move over to women at the Palace of Fine Arts. I do have a digitize catalog of the art displayed there, so I can do some dog-work on that for awhile. I would like your opinion on two things related to that: 1. Is it wiki-correct to make a separate article on the Palace of Fine Arts, Chicago which currently redirects to Museum of Science and Industry (Chicago)? and 2. Should there be a list of just women artists exhibiting or a list of all artist exhibiting? (i.e. List of women photographers v. List of photographers). WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 16:28, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
On the "business before pleasure" principal, your questions, there should (opinion) only be one article for the one building, so Palace of Fine Arts probably should redirect to the Museum of Science and Industry. The list of women artists is a . . ..... charged question. At the time (1892 or 3) several notable women artists were STRONGLY opposed to the idea of women showing separate from male artists. The tern 'sculptress" was despised. These include Hosmer, Whitney and Cassett. I think. I feel that their wishes should still be respected and that such a distinction is best not made. However on gender issues I tend to support the decisions made by the gender in question. On the pleasure side, I have the honor to mention that we have picked up a great ally in our game plan with BoringHistoryGuy - one of the great wikipedia editors., who has begun this. User:BoringHistoryGuy/sandbox. I have started something similar with sculptors, though am way behind BHG. I am attempting to convince him, and thus you, to drop the "American" aspect of this since it was an international expo and wikipedia is frequently charged with being too Amerocentric. If that is a word. Your thoughts? Carptrash (talk) 17:32, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Good afternoon Carptrash. Thanks for answering my question about the Palace of Fine Arts, Chicago. I will add any additional information about its history to the existing article on Museum of Science and Industry page. Quite right that there is only one page for an existing building. I agree with you that there should be one list for artists included in the exhibit, men, women, and all countries. If future editors want to parse out nationalities or sex that would be on them. In the true sense of equality it should be just the one list.

I looked at BoringHistoryGuy’s sandbox and it is impressive for what is shows, but not what I had in mind. I had thought about using a wikitable to present the list but feel that there are some serious drawbacks to that approach. First, names that are wikilinked have first names first. I know there are work-arounds, but still, it makes any sorting feature useless. I imagine if there were a column for “country”, that would be a useful sort, but overall, the data - a list of names - doesn’t really lend itself to a table format on wikipedia. I think it would get very long and unwieldy and I have no idea how it would look on a phone or tablet. And, as an editor who has tried to come in and edit a table, I find it hard to do.

For an idea of what I had in mind I suggest looking at List of Australian women artists and List of book arts centers. A gallery of public domain images could be added at the bottom. I think it should be alphabetical by last name, but with a regular wikilink like the “List of Australian women artists” and instead of birth/death date it would have the artist’s nationality in parenthesis followed by type of artist.

  • Cecilia Beaux (American), painter
  • Frank W. Benson (American), painter

Alternatively there could be sections either by country or media followed by the alphabetical list, the way the "List of book arts centers" is arranged.

Finally, if we truly want to divide up the work and get something posted, I think a list instead of a table would be the way to go. Your thoughts? WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 20:00, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Well I think BHG is an unstoppable force, as well as producing a fine product, so his Paintings article will come out, as will my similar on on Sculpture, but an independent list such as you are proposing is a fine way to go as well. Carptrash (talk) 00:29, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
I look forward to seeing your articles Carptrash. You are admirably ambitious :) See you around the fargrounds. Best. WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 18:39, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
Shakespeare on ambition: "The noble Brutus hath told you Carptrash was ambitious. If it were so, it was a grievous fault, and grievously hath Carptrash answered it." BHG said that he was posting his article - which is much better than mine - today, I'll send you a link when it happens. He is just doing paintings, when I see his format, title, etc., I'll post mine and we shall see what we have. Carptrash (talk) 19:09, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

May Grigg graphic[edit]

The "self-portrait" bears a striking resemblance to an untitled pastel portrait signed by Marjorie Hann once in my possession. If so, and it can be found, it might be of interest to the National Portrait Gallery. I have some detective work to do. Doug butler (talk) 22:48, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Interesting Doug butler! Ms. Hann's exact death date remains a mystery too, so please let me know if you run into that. WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 00:13, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:17, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

I would like to suggest[edit]

that for your list of 1893 women artists you use the format that Boring History Guy and I have already started at List of American sculptors exhibited at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition and List of American painters exhibiting at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Just a thought. Carptrash (talk) 21:26, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi Megalibrarygirl did you get my e-mail request for The Founding and Design of William Merritt Chase’s Shinnecock Hills Summer School of Art and the Art Village? I can resend it you haven't. Thanks. WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 17:17, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
I think so. Let me resend--i think what happened was that I needed it to send me the full text and it only sent me the citation. So I had to redownload and then got sidetracked. I apologize for being slow. I have a lot on my mind recently and it's turned to mush. Thanks for being patient with me! :) Megalibrarygirl (talk) 17:21, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

Infoboxes[edit]

Infoboxes are not compulsory and many users detest them. Please don't go around adding them to articles that have intentionally been left without one. It is not an improvement. --Hegvald (talk) 07:25, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

Invitation to participate in study[edit]

Hello,

I am E. Whittaker, I am working with Wikimedia’s Scoring Team to create a labeled dataset, and potentially a tool, to help editors deal with incivility when they encounter it on talk pages. A full write-up of the study can be found here: m:Research:Civil_Behavior_Interviews. We are currently recruiting editors to be interviewed about their experiences with incivility on talk pages. Would you be interested in being interviewed? I am contacting you because of your involvement in Wikipedia’s Women in Red project. The interviews should take ~1 hour, and will be conducted over BlueJeans (which does allow interviews to be recorded). If, so, please email me at ewhit@umich.edu in order to schedule an interview.

Thank you Ewitch51 (talk) 20:30, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
