Love or Duty[edit]

Original - "Love or Duty", an 1871 chromolithograph by Gabriele Castagnola. Chromolithography was the principal method of producing color prints from the late eighteenth century until the development of offset printing in the 1930s.
Reason
Originally promoted in a unanimous but hurried vote with a little bit of WP:IAR as a holiday idea for Valentine's Day (Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/"Love or Duty"). After it ran on the main page some editors objected on procedural grounds, so it's been delisted for a regular vote. No disrespect was intended. Putting this forward in the usual manner (as the second edit, without the Library of Congress imprint).

  • After thinking bout it I would like to see some mention in the caption of what we can learn from this painting about the artist's technique/timeperiod/etc. for encyclopedic purposes.D-rew (talk) 19:52, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
  • The most I was able to find was about chromolithography. Hope that helps. Castagnola prints are still sold but there's not a lot of citable information about him on the Net. DurovaCharge! 03:08, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
