Diadumenos[edit]

Hi Shakko, I reverted your edit of Image:Farnese Diadumenos BM 501.jpg: the Farnese Diadumenos is considered a copy after an original by Phidias, not by Polykleitos. The ponderation is not the same: the foot of the free leg is not drawn back and raised as in typical Polykleitan contrapposto. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 09:17, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Ok, surely, I see you know the subject. I'm just making the article about Phidias in russian wiki (ru:Фидий) and I've found how poorly is his gallery in wikimedia (Category:Phidias). Shame upon us! Maybe you have something free to add? Athena Lemnia e.g. or good Promachos? --Shakko 11:41, 1 July 2007 (UTC)


Re: Image:8651 - Milano - San Marco - An. - Adorazione dei Magi (sec. XVII) - Foto Giovanni Dall'Orto 14-Apr-2007-detail.jpg[edit]

Hallo. Of course you have the right of producing derivate images from images already existing on Commoms. But a mere detail cut from one existing picture is considered a duplicate, and as such deleted. Is there any particular reason why you need the detail? If so, please make it clear in che caption/description. Othewise the duplicate image should go. Thank you. --User:G.dallorto 16:39, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for uploading this interesting fresco. I've cut a detail and worked with it in Photoshop, trying to remove perspective distortions because of lower point of shooting - in that program you can move the photos in 3D. Look, now it is good here in article[1]. Grazie once again, the camels are charming. --Shakko 19:09, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Painting or mosaic?[edit]

Hallo, it is painted using the fresco technique. So it should be classified as Category:Frescos of crucifixion. Best wishes. --User:G.dallorto 14:34, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Greek profile[edit]

Out of the blue, I can think of some reflexions by Wittgenstein. I'll look into my books and review databases. Do you need pictures? I'm going to the Louvre this afternoon. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 09:35, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Please...[edit]

add a russian description to the aliases of Category:Carl Timoleon von Neff. And to the names of these Russian nobilities in too. Their correct names must be ...volfa, or? Are they famous in Russia? Or is there an article about this family in wp.ru? Sorry, I don´t speak Russian. Greetings from Berlin Mutter Erde 11:09, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Oh, thank you for that :-). And if I have a another problem with the Russian language, I will come again. Thanks and greetings. Mutter Erde 17:28, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Hi Shakko, have you seen this guy? Court painter Jean-Louis Voille. He´s nearly forgotten and so some art dealers like to attribute his works to the more famous (and therefore more expensive) Vigee-Lebrun. Have you seen his works on Russian websites? Greetings from Berlin Mutter Erde 14:47, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
Hi Shakko, I've found one French Rossica from the coronation book. Category:Henri Pierre Léon Pharamond Blanchard. But it's only one pic. Greetings Mutter Erde 16:47, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Toledo[edit]

Hello, Shakko, congratulations for your categorisations of the monuments of Toledo, they were needed!

I have changed the images you included in Category:Bab al-Mardum to Category:Cristo de la Luz (Toledo), because they correspond to the same building. This hermitage has had several names according to their historical use ( mosque and church)and culture. The Bab al-Mardum is the Arab gate of the city close to which the little mosque is located. So the mosque was named the Jimá Bab al-Mardum, meaning Jimá=mosque and Bab=Gate or Door. As the proper Bab al-Mardum, the gate, still exists, I think that it is clearer to use the other denomination, more widely spreaded, of Cristo de la Luz, or if not, Mosque of Bab al-Mardum. The category Category:Bab al-Mardum is still useful to include the images of the gate, but unfortunately I haven´t found any in Commons. Congratulations again for your work, and see you!--Balbo 18:44, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

See the gate. Note that the mosque can be seen at the end of the street. [2]

--Balbo 18:48, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

I have uploaded some flickr images before. I will try to find a free one of the gate. Cheers!--Balbo 19:08, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

James Tissot's Herod[edit]

Hey Shakko- do you mind if I ask where you found such a beautiful photo of James Tissot's painting of Herod? I have only found copies of the very old books from about 1911. Are there more recent reproductions of his Old & New Testament work? Thanks for your time. Josh Sheppard movieboards@eathlink.net

Russian mysteries[edit]

Hi Shakko, we have some problems to find out the sculptors in our Russian (and Ukrainian) section, because nobody of us speaks the Russian language. Are you interested to help us, when you can?

Kind regards Dwsolo (talk) 19:45, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Your request[edit]

The statue you mention is not in Palazzo Barberini but in the Centrale Montemartini museum. However, I did not visit this museum recently (last time was in year 2000) and I do not have the picture you need.

My suggestion is to contact the uploader to check whether s/he can provide a better and bigger scan. Getting pictures in museums in Rome is becoming harder and harder, since they aer forbidding taking pictures and publishing them without their consent (I had to delete all my picutres of Museum di Villa Giulia because they complained with WikiCommons), therefore an ancient picture of the statue would possibily be the best solution after all (they can't sue a dead photographer.. :-) ). My best wishes. Giovanni Dall'Orto --User:G.dallorto (talk) 22:42, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes, it was a mistake of mine[edit]

I was trying to revert the images of John the Baptist in Milan that had been moved to "Saint John". I overdid. You may delete that category. --User:G.dallorto (talk) 19:50, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Stschipatschow (German spelling)[edit]

Hi Shakko, I'm looking for a Russian AND English transcription of the poet in File:Bundesarchiv Bild 183-14809-0004, Berlin, Schriftsteller-Besuch.jpg. His works were sold in East Germany as Stepan Petrowitsch Stschipatschow (not Stschipatschew). In 1948 he has won the Stalin Prize. Perhaps you can help. Regards Mutter Erde 78.52.38.154 15:42, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

here is he - ru:Щипачёв, Степан Петрович. I think Stepan Petrovich Schipachev will be ok.--Shakko (talk) 16:47, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much. I have found some more pics for Category:Stepan Petrovich Schipachev.

may be this one?[4] Georgiy Vasiljevich, Георг (Георгий) Васильевич Мясников. What you think about this photo, one person?[5] He knew Shipachev. But I can's say exactly without initials, "Mjasnikow" means "Butcher's son", quite often surname.--Shakko (talk) 17:47, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Glasses are same model, anyway ))) I think you can write that is Georgiy Vasilevich (?). At that page, his memoirs, he is writing: "Yesterday died Stepan Shipachev", so I think, it is nice guess.--Shakko (talk) 18:20, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I've found the article ru:Мясников, Георг Васильевич, very big. I'll go to ask its author. --Shakko (talk) 18:22, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
YEP, I think that looks good. Here's a better pic to show him
author said:
Подпись под снимком - «профессор Мясников». Георг Васильевич Мясников, которому посвящена статья, не имел ученого звания. Кроме того, в мае 1952 года ему было только 26 лет, а человек на снимке явно старше. Я думаю, что на снимке изображен профессор А.С. Мясников, редактор книги Г.С. Черемина «ОБРАЗ И. В. СТАЛИНА В СОВЕТСКОЙ ХУДОЖЕСТВЕННОЙ ЛИТЕРАТУРЕ», в которой есть сведения и о поэте Щипачёве. --AAA333 23:23 мск, 20 марта 2009 (UTC)

translate:«Georg Mjasnikov never had professor's degree. Also, in may 1952 he was only 26 years old, and man at the picture is much older. I think, that it is professor A.S. Mjasnikov, editor of the book Image of Stalin in soviet literature, which also included materials about Shipachev».

  • Hi Shakko, who might be A. Wlassow, architect, bureaucrat, member of the academy?
  • Or Galina Malinowska (on the left) aka Category:Galina Malinovska ???, an actress, but she might be wrong spelled. I haven't found her in the web (excluding Russian websites of course). Regards Mutter Erde 78.52.38.154 19:18, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Why did you add Category: USA in history paintings? The event depicted here happened in Canada, not the USA. Geo Swan (talk) 04:03, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

pardon, didn't learn it in school 0_0 Removed in Canada in history paintings, you could do it by youself.--Shakko (talk) 06:43, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

...in France[edit]

Re: this edit, I know these categories are in wide use, but I was hoping you could tell me what they are supposed to include. I would think that a painting that is "in France" would be one that is physically located there; a painting "from France" or "of France" would be one made there and/or painted by a French person. You tagged the Gerome painting I linked to as being "in France," but it's presently located in the United States. Please let me know your thoughts. Cheers, Postdlf (talk) 21:01, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

I thought about its provenance, not current location, to be true. And word "orientalistic paintings in France" for me was like "french paintings in orientalistic genre". If you want, you can ask bot to remove all this to category "orientalistic paintings from France".--Shakko (talk) 08:20, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

I think these categories are used both ways, which is a big problem. Category:Ancient Egyptian statues in the United States clearly isn't using "in" to talk about provenance. Somehow we need to split all of these out to "of" or "from" categories for provenance/origin of a work, and "in" for present location only. Any thoughts on how we can make this happen? I don't yet have any experience on Commons with discussing category renames/mergers; I'm typically a Wikipedia boy. Postdlf (talk) 16:20, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

French orientalistic paintings $) I think will be ok. I also do not know, maybe find some admin and ask for bot renaming. --Shakko (talk) 16:59, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Problem with Template:Creator?[edit]

You removed the {{Creator}} template from File:Sandro Botticelli 062.jpg with this edit. Was there a problem with the template position or its behaviour? Because I am also unclear as to the status of Template:Creator in Commons, I have asked at Template talk:Creator#Unclear status in case anyone can clarify what should be done. 84user (talk) 17:28, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

no, it just problem with automatic categorysation using this template. I'm clearing main category Sandro Botticelli removing cut-details of paintings, and that one is now in category:madonnas of Botticelli. If I can find where we can edit template for it not include picture in main catedory, it would be great. Do you know the way?--Shakko (talk) 20:46, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for the explanation. I am now asking how we can disable this categorization at Template talk:Creator#Unclear status. 84user (talk) 00:41, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Category:Coins of Zeus[edit]

Hi Shakko. Do you mind if I rename Category:Coins of Zeus into Category:Zeus on coins? It would be more consistent with other categories (category:Athena on coins and so on) and more correct in my opinion: the coins represent Zeus; Zeus did not mint them (cp. category:coins of ancient Athens, which brings together coins minted by Athens).

Belisarios[edit]

Hello! How do you known that this picture shows Belisarios? Nothing indicates that, as far as I can see. Wikisource-logo.png Jonathan Groß Wikipedia-logo.png 17:32, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

I can't be sure now, it was in December, as I see. It seems to me, it was some wiki article with rare language and not about Belisarios himself. Can't find it now. But now I've found another one page with same information[7]. It is an article about him in Soviet military encyclopaedia (Moscow, 1980) with same fragment of mosaic. I belive it was/is some old classical tradition of indentification. That book has quite good reputation (soviet history books never had any WP:ORIG :) about ancient history - only about communism) --Shakko (talk) 21:20, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure about this: soviet history books never had any WP:ORIG :) about ancient history. Because in the GDR, ancient history was instrumentalised to serve the Marxism-Leninism (slavery -> history of labour movement). But as long as you add your source (the encyclopedia from 1980) to the image description it's OK with me. Yours, Wikisource-logo.png Jonathan Groß Wikipedia-logo.png 07:47, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
no-no, the ancient history was most acceptable! The real ideological madness begins with christianity and capitalism. This is why all soviet historians and art-historians of sound mind studied antiquity or Renaissance - chains were lesser ^) I meant - ORIG in facts - flesh of hipotesis could be very crazy, but state encyclopaedias feel it's duty to have cheked skeleton of facts. --Shakko (talk) 08:07, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Morosow[edit]

Hi Shakko, an exhibition (1930) in Berlin of modern Russian art File:Bundesarchiv Bild 102-10077, Berlin, Ausstellung moderner russischer Kunst.jpg shows a bust of ???? (Maxim Gorki?) by a sculptor named ??? Morosow. Do you have an idea which Morosow had sculpted this bust? Regards Mutter Erde 78.51.199.130 12:21, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

I belive it is Mikhail Kalinin. With author is harder, Morozov is quite common russian surname (it means Frozen ;). No famous sculptors of this surname, I've added in description some. --Shakko (talk) 13:28, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Hi, thank you. It looks good :-). Regards Mutter Erde 78.51.199.130 15:27, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Hi Shakko, you have moved it to Karl Sievers, but he has still the categories of the other Category:Jacob Johann Sievers. Please change Karl's categories too (I can't do it, because I don't speak Russian) And there is perhaps another problem, which only Russian speakers can decide. See also http://www.abcgallery.com/R/rossika/prenner1.html Regards Mutter Erde 79.194.88.38 19:40, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
abcgallery.com said it is Jacob in Rjazan (it is small town), maybe copy. Others sites said it is Karl in Hermitage. I belive in Hermitage atribution, so museum's workers from Razan must have been mistaken. --Shakko (talk) 20:03, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I think you are right. I have found him in ru:Сиверс, Карл Ефимович. But I can't translate his Russian categories :-). Regards Mutter Erde 79.194.88.38 21:20, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

can't catch your idea, what you want me to do? Find his another portraits? or add something? --Shakko (talk) 15:29, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
Hi Shakko, something is still wrong, I guess. Is there any proof, that the painting in ru:Сиверс, Карл Ефимович depicts Karl Efimovich? Why not Jakov Efimovich according to http://www.abcgallery.com/R/rossika/prennerbio.html#Sievers . Look at the different birth dates. But it is too hard for me without the Russian language. So it might be better to delete the Category: Karl Sievers. Regards Mutter Erde 79.194.88.148 16:20, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
Look. Olga's gallery (abcgallery.com) - is not official site. It calls him Jacov. Official site of Hermitage museum calls him Karl. (Here is the page in english[8]). So, he can be Jacov or Karl, but official site of Hermitage museum that goes from museum catalogs is more and more reliable source than abcgallery.com. Let him be Karl, with note, that there is another opinion. --Shakko (talk) 19:39, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Postnikow[edit]

Hi Shakko, wp.de names Grigori Postnikow (1914–1978) as the sculptor of Category:Stalin-Denkmal, Karl-Marx-Allee (Berlin), but it's a redlink and not proved by native Russian speakers. How you would transcribe him in English? Is there an article about him in wp.ru? Regards Mutter Erde 92.226.253.86 09:32, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

He is Grigoriy Nikolaevich Postnikov. I've made a stub in ru-wiki for you - ru:Постников, Григорий Николаевич. --Shakko (talk) 10:23, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Wow, you are quick :-). Thank you. There's is a small second problem in de:Stalindenkmal (Berlin), because one good source names Postnikov as the sculptor, but 2 others name Tomski or S. D. Merkurow aka Category:Sergey Merkurov. What do you and Russian sources think? Regards 92.226.253.86 11:16, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
I can't find any information about authors of this sculpture, not for Postnikov, not for others two. But doubts about the Postnikov's authorship are quite justified: in 1951 he was unknown (they took him in USSR's scultptors' trade union only in 1952), and unlikely they give him so great commission as leader's monument in the other country capital: in 1967 there was a little "war" about giving him commission to make Yuri Gagarin's (!!! not even Stalin's or Khrushev's) portrait, 'cos he is "too unknown". Also no more "stalins" in his heritage, as opposed to Tomsky & Merkurov, who have a lot of it. All Postnikov's works are about cosmos, Gagarin, sputnik, etc.--Shakko (talk) 11:47, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
According to the de-aricle this statue was only a gift of Komsomol for Category:3rd World Festival of Youth and Students in Berlin, so it might have been not too expensive. The German communists placed it in the new built Stalinallee. I guess, Komsomol have comissioned the unknown (and cheap) Postnikov to copy a Merkurov statue.
I will add Postnikov with a note "disputed", so you or any other user can revert it, OK? :-). Thanks for all. Regards Mutter Erde 92.230.83.196 14:58, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Hi Shakko, I have found a Soviet guy (important for Berlin history) in 2 cats: Category:Alexander Kotikow and Category:Alexander Kotikov.

(Александр Георгиевич Котиков) Alexander Georgievich Kotikov - is your Berliner person. By the way, his daughter Svetlana Kotikova became an actress, and before it, as a child, she was sitting for German girl's image in this your statue - de:Sowjetisches Ehrenmal (Treptower Park). "Kotikov" isn't popular surname, kotik means die Bärenrobbe or Kätzchen (surname "Kotov" from Kater is much more popular and there would be problems).

Thank you very much, I have learned a lot. And thank you for the cute little "kotik" :-). And of course for sweet little Svetlana :-).
Concerning Postnikov: When there is no Russian source for Postnikov's autorship of the Stalin statue, then it has to be corrected. Shit happens.
Today I have found and categorized two paintings, they might be interesting for your Rossica collection, (because of the "H" in Hau). There are some more beautiful paintings of him to get in the web. But I can't do that, sigh. Thanks a lot and greetings from Berlin Mutter Erde 78.55.3.218 21:48, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
I think you should keep info about Postnikov as a version - ru-internet is really poor with information, and the absense means nothing. I'll try to find some more paper books. --Shakko (talk) 08:19, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
here is more Hau and here. I've uploaded some for you. --Shakko (talk) 08:36, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks :-). In this thread are some nice big scans. But I have no idea, whether these people are identified or notable. But some paintings might be interesting for cats as fashion in Russia, fashion in 1850 etc. And by the way: Googling for Svetlana Kotikova gives not one source. What's her actress' name? Regards Mutter Erde 78.55.244.17 12:25, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
2nd and 3rd pictures there - great princesses, others - many unknown persons. --Shakko (talk) 14:33, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
Here is the sourse for her sitting http://mk.ru/social/270599.html (publicated in de:Moskowski Komsomolez - notable gazette). Her bio in russian http://www.kino-teatr.ru/kino/acter/sov/21506/bio/ Her name is Svetlana Kotikova (Светлана Котикова). She wasn't famous, small parts in theater, etc.--Shakko (talk) 13:56, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

  • Hi Shakko, is there in ru.wp a site for identifying uncredited people as here? It's a pity, the Germans are not really interested, they have problems with the transcription into English, but these people might be interesting especially for Russian readers. Or here, the Soviet general(?) on the left. Regards Mutter Erde 78.55.98.19 08:46, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
    No, we haven't a site like that. Everybody are so lazy...--Shakko (talk) 07:45, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Burning Bush icons[edit]

Dear Shakko:

I noticed that you removed the category: Burning bush icons from several icons of the Burning Bush. I was wondering why you did that. The title of these icons is, in fact, "Burning Bush", so it naturally makes sense to place them in that category. I am interested in your reasoning on this. Than you very much. MishaPan (talk) 15:29, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Dear Shakko:
Thank you for your answer. That makes perfect sense. To answer your question: No, I'm sorry I don't read Russian. It would be very helpful since there are so many wonderful images on Commons that have descriptions only in Russian. MishaPan (talk) 18:19, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

in ru-net also is that portrait Anna, but without author. I'll look more. About Alexandra - it's not my time period, I don't know masters of that time. It seems that second is a fragment from first. Here and here author really is Bodarevskiy.--Shakko (talk) 23:11, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
no... no sign of primary source for Leopoldovna in internet. Maybe will find something in books. --Shakko (talk) 10:16, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi and thanks a lot. May I get also your interest for this? Sainte-Geneviève-des-Bois Russian Cemetery. Which of them might be interesting for Non-Russians too?

Thank you, that was really interesting for me to read the stories of these people, which before were hidden behind the mysterious cyrrilic file names and descriptions.
In Berlin there is a cemetery Friedhof Grunewald-Forst, until 1927 only for suiciders, in which 5 Russian soldiers/immigrants are also interred, who together committed suicide after they have heard, that the Czar and his family has been killed. They have these orthodox wood crosses with Russian inscriptions, and I was wondering, who they were. Perhaps their stories are nothing really special, but if you find someday a note about them, please give me a link. I wil use your link as above :-). Thanks and good night. Mutter Erde 78.55.165.171 22:46, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
do we have a photo of this crosses? I need names, not enough info for find something.--Shakko (talk) 22:55, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Hi Shakko, I have to admit a little error. The story goes in fact, that these 5 were so disappointed, that the Bolshewiks have won (the Czar was killed one year later!). I have uploaded one cross here http://i46.tinypic.com/35lf24k.jpg , dated March 16, 1917. Another name I could transcribe by myself is Pavel Taracenko/Tarasenko. Somebody takes care for them, because the wooden crosses are renewed. Regards Mutter Erde 78.55.22.168 10:41, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
He's name is Матвей Логвиненко (Matvey Logvinenko) and looks like the inscription was made by somebody who doesn't know Russian letters. But here is problem with date - 16. III. 1917. No sign of Bolsheviks yet, only de:Februarrevolution 1917 had just passed. I belive they did it 'cos 15. III. 1917 - is the date of emperor Nikolay II's abdication. Also they can't be emigrants - that movement begin an masse only after Civil War. Maybe they were captives that your people had taken from my people during WW1 :) Sad there is no sign of their rank - soldiers or officers? TarasenKO and LogvinenKO are both not aristokratic but simply Ukranian or cossack surnames. In Russian web I can't find information. --Shakko (talk) 11:05, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, they seem to be prisoners of war. But they are interred in this secret cemetery, although the orthodox Russian community of Berlin has its own cemetery Category:Friedhof der Russisch-Orthodoxen Gemeinde Berlin-Tegel, including en:Vladimir Dmitrievich Nabokov. I guess the reason is, that the Russian church (as the German churches) have their special problems with suiciders. Thanks for your help. Regards Mutter Erde 78.55.22.168 11:49, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Of course, it have the prohibition. So, what I think - if they were officers or aristocratic people, could be some notes in memoirs about their suicide. But if they are simply cossack - nobody could write about them... so I can't find. I'll ask some people more. --Shakko (talk) 11:54, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
I've asked here http://community.livejournal.com/warhistory/1855693.html - it reads 3700 boys/men who likes military history. Maybe it will work. If you have another photos you can add there in comments.--Shakko (talk) 12:09, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

HO! I love internet. They did it for us:

Zwischen 1914 und 1918 wurden fünf Russen auf dem Friedhof begraben. Fälschlicherweise wird häufig berichtet, daß sie sich aus Trauer über die Ermordung ihres geliebten Zaren Nikolaus (am 17. Juli 1918) das Leben nahmen. Wenn das der Fall sein sollte, hätten sie über prophetische Gaben verfügen müssen, da alle fünf bereits vor der [...]

Es handelt sich hier um Kriegsgefangene des Ersten Weltkriegs, die nach Berlin gebracht wurden und auf dem Gelände der [...] untergebracht waren und als Zwangsarbeiter schwerster körperlicher Arbeit nachgehen mußten. Von den drei zuerst verstorbenen, Pavel Tarasenko (+ 8.4.1914), Matvyj Logvinenko (+ 16.3.1917) und Stefan Melikov (+ 25.10.1917) soll einer an Methylalkoholvergiftung, die beiden anderen an Infektionskrankheiten verursacht durch die schlechten Lebensbedingungen im Lager, verstorben sein. Von den beiden später begrabenen Sergej Tschuravel (+ 4.7.1918) und Leo Sunjenko (+ 5.7.1918) heißt es, daß sie den Freitod in der Havel wählten. Sie sollen nach der Oktoberrevolution keine Chance mehr gesehen haben, jemals in ihre Heimat [zurückzukehren?]

Wow, that's great :-). But a detail is unclear: When only the last both were suiciders, why the first three are not interred together with all the other prisoners of war in the orthodox cemetery? Also: Who pays for the graves and the crosses and keeps their memory?
Although their names are now clear, I have uploaded the last of them http://i45.tinypic.com/vpktb4.jpg - as an example for his en:Homesickness. (btw: no ru-article about Homesickness, Heimweh?

  • Hi, I have found this: "Zwischen 1917 und 1919 nahmen sich fünf Russen, die vor der Oktoberrevolution geflohen waren, in der Havel das Leben." Steinmann geht um die schweren Holzkreuze herum. "Sie sollen tot-traurig über den Tod ihres Zaren gewesen sein." from http://www.tagesspiegel.de/berlin/art270,2075516 (This translates: Between 1917 and 1919 5 Russians, which has been escaped because of Oktoberrevolution, committed suicide in the Havel (=river). Allegedly they were (extremely) sad because of the death of the Czar) The same (Carl-Peter) Steinmann as above has told this to a journalist, while walking through this cemetery. Regards Mutter Erde 78.55.62.165 01:06, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
    • I think he said it while walking as a bright story good for telling. Or he may think it then and had discovered the truth only some time later. The dates are quite straight - only in 1918 the victory of Bolsheviks become clear, so it is a legend about 5 suicide that grow up from true about 2. Your question about "detail is unclear" seems quite right for me, but I can't answer. And who is Nico? --Shakko (talk) 17:18, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Old Testament saints[edit]

Hi, Shakko. Thank you for your note on my talk page. However, I must take issue with your premise that Old Testament figures are not Christian saints. In the Orthodox Church the righteous from the Old Testament are indeed considered to be saints in exactly the same sense as any holy person born after the Death and Resurrection of Christ. The Orthodox teach that, ever since the Harrowing of Hell (when Christ descended into Hades after his Crucifixion and prior to his Resurrection) the righteous of the Old Testament were released and allowed to enter into heaven, where they enjoy the same level of blessedness as any other saint. So, in the context of an Orthodox iconostasis, icons of the forefathers Adam and Issachar (Праотец Адам. Праотец Иссахар) are indeed icons of saints. MishaPan (talk) 23:06, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

formally you're right, in orthodoxy list of saints classes includes prophets, patriarchs and theopatores (by the way en:List of Eastern Orthodox saint titles is incomplete...). But we never talk about saint Solomon or saint Moses, they are for mind in separate subcategory. I thought is better not to mix them, 'cos I create alphabet saints' categories for innumerable Christian saints. But if you wants to - no problem. --Shakko (talk) 23:25, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

You tagged exact duplicate [[:image:File:Guerin, Pierre Narcisse - Morpheus and Iris.jpg] and probably others, but the other version provided isn't exact duplicate of the original, but usually fixed up, tonemapped or otherwise changed image. Please either list them under normal deletion process or ask the uploader to request its removal.

Purple Pictures?[edit]

Hi,

I was looking at some of the beautiful pictures you uploaded by the artist Borovikovsky, and several of them looked ok on the main screen, but then had a rather bright violet tone on full resolution. This was true for Jelena Pavlovna and Marie Pavlovna in the identical blue and peach outfits respectively and perhaps another can't recall. I don't think my computer is creative enough to produce that on its own, and I don't have them 'selected' as one can do and turn pages/pictures blue.

Not all the Nobility of Georgia where part of the Tsar Nobility. I can give you examples if you want. Pleas remove the category from the nobility of Georgia. Geagea (talk) 09:39, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Your English is ok for me. Anyway, the history of Georgia (and I believe Poland also) are long then 100 yers of Russian annexation during the tsardom. I post the category of Russin nobility because it appears in the articles themselves. However, I understand what your saying and correct it by posting the new category to te specific people or categories. feel free correcting me if it needed. Geagea (talk) 16:50, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Knyaz[edit]

Hi Shakko,

The category includes people who have the title "Knyaz". Not only Georgians. Geagea (talk) 12:15, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Knyaz is a nobility title that can be equivalent to prince or duke as the article says, I took it from the article. It is not only for Georgians. If you want to remove the duke it is ok with me. maybe is better to remove it from the English Wikipedia article. I also think that category:Graf can be also be nice category. The commons is not Wikipedia, making categories that define the person or the picture is welcome. You have categories like Category:Women facing right, Category:Red Bull Salzburg v. SK Sturm Graz (20100513) ect. They also can be considerd as strange but no. They are ok for cataloging and categoriesing of pictures.Geagea (talk) 21:40, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

File:Dauphin François II.jpg[edit]

Hello, I have removed the Category:Portrait miniatures in France of that file because it is not "miniature" (less than 10/15 cm ?) I have not exact dimention (next time i will go bock to Louvre, I will test) but it is quite "large". I think (by memory) around 30 cm, I put this information in the file description. Regards. - Siren-Com (talk) 13:47, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

You can do how you like, more Category is better than less. I think whatever that this "enamel" was made to be put in the wall on the "Cabinet des émaux" of Catherine de Médicis in Hotel de Soissons in Paris. I have few more picture to put on commons of the same artist, I will do in few time. With salutations, - Siren-Com (talk) 14:08, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

The only fresco about sixtus coming to my mind is the one in his category, by Melozzo. we should check the dates, but I would imagine the fresco with those kings set out by the Turks: the byzantine emperor, the despot of Morea, and those countries in the Balcans, like the ungarian (?), the serbian, the bulgars and maybe Skandenberg from Albania.. it could also be the Vojvodina (Romania) duke, but again, we should check at the times of sixtus what the Turka had already conquered and what not... hope it helps.. --Sailko (talk) 19:26, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Self portraits[edit]

Hi Shakko,

Hope you don't mind, but I added the sortkeys back because otherwise the subcategories aren't easily visible at Category:Self-portraits. (It's not a problem for Category:Not a self-portrait, but for the other ones). I'm not entirely convinced of the usefulness of all these "by" categories as they make it harder to sort the images at Category:Self-portraits (additional step for HotCat). We might want to review later, if it's worth keeping that. I'd have preferred if we had discussed this before re-organizing it.  Docu  at 00:17, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

<moved talk from User talk:Docu>

But there is already so comfortable template "category tree all" that makes all the subcats visible on the first page? By the way, I've made the new one Category:Self-portraits with wife - please, be my guest to adding pictures to it :) Shakko (talk) 05:19, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

</moved>

You need to click on that first to make anything visible. The "by" category also make it harder to move things from the main category to subcategory. They can help people thinking about the same image from various aspects though.
BTW, I like Category:Self-portraits with wife. Good idea!  Docu  at 19:03, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Category:Knights of the Order of the Holy Spirit[edit]

Hello, I saw your move of a file from Category:Order of the Holy Spirit to Category:Knights of the Order of the Holy Spirit. The first category concerns pictures wich show that order, the second category concerns persons having that order. As pictures are in the persons category, it is eventually the persons category which gets Category:Knights of the Order of the Holy Spirit and many users will spontaneously transfer Category:Knights of the Order of the Holy Spirit from the individual images to the persons category, changing Category:Knights of the Order of the Holy Spirit from a series of pictures into a series of categories. Just asking: Is that what you have forseen in making that move? --Havang(nl) (talk) 19:43, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Giovanni Bellini[edit]

I think you are somewhat overcategorizing these paintings. In particular, I don't think "Paintings by name" is a useful category.

Paintings of the Birth of Mary[edit]

Hi Shakko, I've reverted a number of edits you have made concerning the Category:Paintings of birth of Mary. Renaissance does, roughly, start in 1500, thus any painting painted before (especially paintings like this) do not belong into the Category:Renaissance paintings of Birth of Mary.

Категории[edit]

  • Уважаемая коллега, Вы писали:

Я вас умоляю, не создавайте категории, не убедившись предварительно, не существует ли она уже. В результате мы тут имеем например, категории landscapes OF russia, landscapes FROM russia, landscapes IN Russia. Лишнее пришлось выставлять на удаление, и все перекидывать в одно. Сейчас титаническим трудом мне удалось прибраться. Теперь у нас есть:

Второе. Я, конечно, понимаю, что ленинградская школа - это ваша специализация, но вашими усилиями теперь кажется, что ничего кроме нее в русском искусстве не существовало, если судить по викикоммонс. Поэтому ваше я все-таки отсортировала и сложила в отдельные

чтобы робкие венециановы и шишкины не тонули в этом обилии. Рекомендую вам проделать то же самое со всеми остальлными вашими загрузками. И, ради бога, не плодите сущностей! --Shakko (talk) 19:56, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

  • Спасибо за информацию. Прежде, чем ответить по-существу, а тем более что-то исправлять в ранее сделанных загрузках, мне необходимо ознакомиться с тем, как выглядят категории после Вашей чистки. На это нужно время, поскольку давно ничего не загружал, новых категорий не создавал и процесс "чистки" не отслеживал. Работа эта действительно титаническая и прежде, чем ее начинать, наверное имело смысл попытаться обсудить проблемы хотя бы в общих чертах с заинтересованными участниками? С уважением, Leningradartist (talk) 12:08, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Из созданной Вами Category:Leningrad School landscape paintings удаляю работы Николая Дубовского, скончавшегося в 1918 и не имевшего к Leningrad School никакого отношения. Пока только начал знакомство с новой структурой категорий. С уважением, Leningradartist (talk) 18:24, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Несколько удалил вручную, но там ещё 24...и все добавлены Вами. Будет справедливо, если труд исправить эту ошибку возьмет на себя опытный автор? С уважением, Leningradartist (talk) 18:58, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Идите вот сюда[10] и поставьте галочки напротив Hot-cat и Cat-a-lot. Работа с категоризацией сразу убыстрится в 100 раз и какие надо картинки вы переместите ровно за 1 секунду. Если будут вопросы по работе гаджетов, спрашивайте.--Shakko (talk) 00:47, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Niebelung genealogy.jpg[edit]

Как я понимаю, в этом созданном Вами файле как родители Гунтера, Гернота, Гизельхера и Кримхильды в варианте Нибелунгов указаны Ута и Гебикка. Откуда информация о Гебикке? Не только русский перевод Корнеева указывает имя отца Данкрат, но и на сайте австрийского института германистики в рукописи А (строка, обозначенная 000072) Ir vater hiez danchrat. В рукописи B та же строка включает имя Danchwart. В рукописи С строка 00-042 ir vat*er d*er hiez Dancrвt. Fuseau (talk) 09:31, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

я этот файл создавала достаточно давно, на основе какой информации - не вспомню. Кажется, схеме в ен-вики. Если там ошибка - перерисуйте, или напишите мне точно, что надо изменить, я переделаю в свободное время.--Shakko (talk) 10:25, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Надо внести ясность в то, какие имена где указываются. Мое предложение - в каждой ячейке предусмотреть место для трех вариантов имен (историческое, в Песни о Нибелунгах, в сагах), и пояснить это (возможна проблема с разницей между генеалогиями). Сейчас возникает непоследовательность: в указанном мной случае черным шрифтом указано имя исторического персонажа, короля Бургундии Гебикки, а ниже тем же шрифтом даются имена "его" (точнее, Данкрата) сыновей, взятые из Песни о Нибелунгах (с Gernot; если бы, как с Гебиккой, продолжать указывать черным имена исторических персонажей, надо было бы Gundomar).

Category:Coat of arms of Medici-Habsburg in Palazzo Mellini-Fossi[edit]

Hello, I've undone your edition there, but I'm not sure if I am correct. Why have you added it to the Coats of arms of the House of Medici? Is this truly a coat of arms of that house, in the most precise sense of the word (not something that emanated from that house, as that is lready covered in the marshalling)?--- Darwin Ahoy! 19:57, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

sorry, i didn't notice that one. --Shakko (talk) 19:59, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
No problem. I often get confused with those "Coats of arms of the House of X" because people tend to put there every coat of arms of a descendant of the house, especially with marshalling. I believe that only the coats of arms of representatives of the house (the eldest branch, usually, and only one in a given time, the head of the house) should be located there. As finding this implies extensive research work, I'm not doing it for now, but possibly other people are. that's why I asked you. Cheers, --- Darwin Ahoy! 20:06, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
this is one uploaded by my today File:Coat of arms of the Medici (pietre dure).jpg. It is ok categorized? --Shakko (talk) 20:08, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for showing me that one, that category Category:pietre dure is something I was looking for, as I have here many pictures of a church with that artwork, but didn't knew what was the name of the technique. I've added some more categories to that coat of arms which will allow for a better categorization in the future.--- Darwin Ahoy! 20:19, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
ok :) but please separate interior pietre dure (floor or wall) from objects (table, etc.) 'cos 1st of all it is tecniq for small pieces. I think it will be good to create the category for interior finishing with pietre dure. --Shakko (talk) 20:22, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
I believe I would have both things, though in the church it's mostly in the walls (and it's truly a beautiful artwork). When I upload those images I'll contact you to ask your opinion.--- Darwin Ahoy! 20:25, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Please don't upload over existing images[edit]

Hi, I noticed you uploaded a new version of File:Italienischer Maler des 17. Jahrhunderts 001.jpg in 2009. However, Commons strongly discourages uploading one version of an image over another, unless they have exactly the same appearance. Moreover, although you may prefer your version of the image, I consider it to be lower-quality than the Yorck image. As such, if you want to use it, please upload it under a different filename. If you must upload over an existing file, you should update the "Source" field to indicate where you got it from. There is also now File:Charles Mellin (attributed) - Portrait of a Gentleman - Google Art Project.jpg, which I believe is superiour in quality to both. Thanks!

Category:Models of buildings in Russia. Прекрасная категория. Вы понимаете, что отттуда можно всё выносить на удаление? А там вероятность keep'а невелика: даже Jcb режет не глядя - см. commons:Deletion requests/File:Gorki-izba-3028.jpg. Ладно, Царскосельский макет положим выживет (Домогацкий умер в 1939, о подмастерьях его умолчим) - но всё остальное-то? NVO (talk) 09:54, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

ну а что делать? могу быстро откатить все свои правки и сделать все как было. А что, точная копия здания 12 века все равно считается авторским произведением, не производным?Shakko (talk) 09:58, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
В принципе, категории статуй и монументов живут без особых хлопот - хотя там абсолютное большинство против свободы панорамы. Откатывать или нет? Не уверен; скорее я бы откатил всё, что не очевидная древность (т.е. автор известен и умер до 1941, или можно подтвердить, что модель сделана до революции). А на последний ваш вопрос тут обычно отвечают: "даже не пытайтесь сказать моделисту, что его выпиливание - не творческий процесс (Don't tell a model maker that models are not creative). Каждая снятая стружка, каждый вбитый гвоздик - творческое решение..." Поэтому удаляют не только архитектурные модели, но и самолётов, пароходов и пр. вплоть до китайских игрушек по доллару за пару. Логики там особой нет - но статистика явно в пользу удалений. См. User:NVO/Wikihistory of scale models. NVO (talk) 10:06, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
т.е. если свобода панорамы в России когда-нибудь случится, то это поможет? Кстати, вопрос. Вот манекен с костюмом от Шанель. Его фото можно грузить или нет? Костюм-то от-кутюр, т.е. как бы шедевр моды и все такое прочее. Если этот же костюм на живом человеке (в году 1937-м каком-нибудь - для чистоты эксперимента), то таких раздумий нет, как я вижу, грузят просто.Shakko (talk) 10:09, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Шанель - можно. Микимауса - нет. NVO (talk) 12:56, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
костюм от Диора на манекене? Рисунок того же костюма рукой Диора на бумаге - понятно, нельзя. А вот тряпки?Shakko (talk) 14:02, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
А это на какого сисопа попадёшь. Общий подход такой: "полезные образцы" (то, что можно надеть), пусть и защищённое законом от подделок, - можно. Но костюм Микимауса нельзя, потому что костюм - производная от чисто копирайченого "произведения искусства". Потому если за костюмом не угадывается рука коварного Голливуда - можно!

Shakko, have you started a deletion request only for the File:Hot Russian blonde girl in bikini.jpg? If you have started a colective e/o mass deletion request, you have to report it to all the uploaders and not to just one. Furthermore you have to add the deletion request template to all the files that you have nominated for deletion request. Best regards, Jacopo Werther (talk) 12:38, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

заметки на полях[edit]

Мне понадобилось некоторое время, чтобы уловить значение слова «предстоящие» в религиозном контексте. «С предстоящими» я бы перевёл как «with attendants», «with intercessors». --Thorvaldsson (talk) 12:41, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

  • я думала о with donors, а дальше моя мысль забуксовала. Shakko (talk) 12:49, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
В подобном контексте «with donors» – это «с заказчиками». Я заметил, что в переводах «с предстоящим/и» часто опускается, как в «с предстоящим преподобным Сергием Радонежским»: «enthroned, [] with»; [11] переведено как «with the praying». --Thorvaldsson (talk) 13:19, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Upload of paintings[edit]

Hi Shakko. Thank you very much for all your uploads of wonderful paintings of art of the world. Please, don't forget that a painting is not only from a painter, but has a location too (museum, collection, etc.), and has a subject too (Madonna, Saint, monument, landscape, city, etc.). It's important that you give all these categories to a file that you have uploaded, different way, these wonderfull paintings in practice are not to see. Actually I am working to order all the paintings of the Category:National Museum of Capodimonte (Naples), and often I find situations like this, where you give only the painter category, and then the location (Museum) only in the description, and not as category too. I will be very greatfull to you, if you will give the museum category to the paintings that you will upload. For the Museum of Capodimonte, it's not necessary that you give the specific collection category, you just need to give the generic category, and later I will give the correct sub-cat. Thank you very much for your help. Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 09:29, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

ok. Pardon that I give you work in addition, I hate it by myself too... But when I do the massive upload sometimes it takes so much time to understand what exactly museum is mention. When I have Russian translated name of foreign museum - oh, it's time to cry. For Italian museums situation is better, but I think maybe we should have here redirect of every museum with local and English name (Museo del Prado => Prado Museum, like this). Prepositions are killing me. --Shakko (talk) 09:35, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
Sometimes I have the same problems like you. So, when I identify the english name, which is a lot different from the name that I know, I realize the redirect cat. I do it for the different names of the artist too. But usually, it's not difficult to find the correct museum name. If you search "Prado" or "Capodimonte" they are done then in the correct form. Different way you can search the city name (in this case Madrid, or Naples), and then you open the category "Museums in CityName". You need only few seconds or minutes to find the correct name! Have a nice day ! --DenghiùComm (talk) 11:45, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

Kremlin Armoury[edit]

Hi Shakko. Sorry to bother you, but I stumbled upon this picture recently and in my opinion it shows striking similarity to this one, which is credited in Yuri Miller: Russian Arms and Armour (Aurora Art Publishers, Leningrad 1982. Plate 15) to some Vladimir Stukalov. Furthermore, the series to which it belongs contains 57 pictures taken on August 12, 2009, between 13:48 and 14:04 and - if the pictures were taken at the Armoury - in different halls & floors. This seems highly unlikely to me, assuming there were no exhibitions abroad at the time with easier access to the exhibits. Or am I too suspicious here? --Oberlaender (talk) 05:01, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

When can I expect an answer from you? --Oberlaender (talk) 23:15, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
Armoury has only 1 floor (2nd is - w:Diamond Fund), one easy-to-use suite of rooms, and never has temporary exhbitions at all, only the permanent exposition, which is quite easier to access every day exept Thursdays at the price of 200 roubles. As you can see at my next photo set, same place, 2011: 1, 2, 3, 4 - it was taken in different rooms during only 5 minutes. But for tranquillity of your soul (and mine, as I consider 2009 set quite negligent and poor, and was planned it long before) I promise with the lapse of time to substitute current photos for new ones, that I will do in my next visit to Armoury with my newest and beautiful super-cam. The cataloging of Moscow museums (see Pushkin, Historical) is one of my favorite quests. Sorry that my affection for encyclopaedic data took your time for search, I hope you share that encyclopaedic passion too and enjoy it. Shakko (talk) 07:40, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Well, I wish you all the best with this project and I'm sure Wikipedia will get great benefit out of it. Even so, you should consider thinking again about the circumstances which led to the 2009 Armoury series. Maybe you will come to the conclusion that there was a misunderstanding which can be solved easily with the appropriate applications Commons offers. --Oberlaender (talk) 12:45, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

если портрет кардинала, то, вероятнее всего, это его карлик.

карлик — справа; кардинал — слева [12]
интересно узнать Ваше мнение
--Thorvaldsson (talk) 12:45, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

вообще, по-моему одно лицо, действительно. Хотя вон название гласит, что это король Category:Stanislaus I Leszczyński - он тоже был толстый. Думаю, они взяли это имя исходя из трудовой книжки карлика... Но на этом двойном портрете вполне может быть совсем другой карлик, итальянский. Вы, кажется, совершили открытие :)

Я бы не спешил перечёркивать ‘неаполитанскую школу’— портрет не по стилистике, не по датировке не может быть работой, написанной Пьером Миньяром (1612–1695):
Пьер Миньяр (1612–1695)
Сильвио кардинал Валенти Гонзага (1690 –1756)
Прототип портрета ‘кардинала’ является его портрет работы Пьера Сюблейра (1699–1749), датируемого ок. 1740 г. (Капитолийская пинакотека, инв. PC 402).
Я также склоняюсь к тому, что данный портрет был написан после смерти кардинала, завещавшему г-ну Мамо пожизненную годичную уплату суммой в 60 скудо.

I should be there for 3 days from Sept. 03rd... If you can, then we can talk more about it in next days.

Hi Shakko! I was gonna write you soon.. thanks for all the nice infos, you are such knoledgefull!! I wonder how many lovers Catherine had..... dozens and dozens??
I almost finished to upload my pictures from the travel in Russia.. and I am pleased I sometimes shooted things not yet on commons. For instance at the Hermitage I was the first to upload pictures of the glassware collections and, hard to believe, I was apparently the first commoneers to visit the Eurasian archaeology section.. an entire half floor of the museum never shooted before for commons! If I knew I had taken more and more pictures!! In Tsarskoe Selo I was the first to upload pictures of inside the pavillons of the garden. Nice find out! As regards the modern art I had some pictures of artists in Tretyakov and Russian Museum entered recently in PD, so we had almost nothing in Commons. In the Pushikin Museum you already did such a good job, and I improved some sections of archaeology.. I also revised the categorization of some part of the collections, basing myself on the Louvre scheme. Sooo a lot of job, but almost ended... I still have to upload the old masters at the Pushkin Museum ;) Thanks again for all your help and support!! Now you will find mine pictures too in the Russian categories :)) --Sailko (talk) 14:53, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Pushkin Museum[edit]

Hi Shakko. Thank you for all your wonderful pictures ! Now I have a little problem. In this picture on the left side in the background there is a standing female statue. I think that it's the same of this one. But I have difficult to identify it. She is said from Pompeii, in the Museum in Naples, but I don't find it. Perhaps there is a mistake. Can you help me? Do you know its name, provenance, Museum where she is to show, inventory number? Thank you very much for your help and informations ! Cheers, --DenghiùComm (talk) 07:59, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi Shakko. Thank you very much for your help. The problems are these: 1) this statue is not exposed in the Archaeological Museum of Naples (MANN); this means that she can be in one of the storages, or that she is not of the MANN; 2) she is said to come from Pompeii, but not in which building or house she was found; often this means that this is a mistake and she was not found in Pompeii but elsewhere; 3) in the MANN we have a very rich pompeian collection, but it is the collection of the Bourbons, the kings of Naples; that means that after year 1860 (unification of Italy as nation) very few findings of Pompeii came to Naples: the new findings was all put in storage areas in the old or in the new city of Pompei; 4) since years we have work in progress in the MANN, now in an area, now in another, and often for these restoration works it's necessary to move completely whole sections (sometime a collection for visitors, sometime storages), that means that sometime it's very difficult too to access in a storage or to find an artifact; 5) it happens that often for very important and famous pieces you have all the pictures and repertories that you need, but for the other pieces it's very difficult to find a picture that can help you to identify an object or artwork. So, for all these reasons, I have very difficult to identify some pieces, and it is paradoxical that sometime it's easyer to identify an artwork when it is abroad in an exposition, than when it is "at home" in a storage. So I will be very greatfull to you for each information that you can give me about that very nice female statue. Thank you so much ! Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 16:22, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
Hi Shakko. Thank you very very much !!! I suppose that the mistake comes from the type called "little Herculanese". I will research more informations about this statue. Again 1000 Thanks ! Cheers, --DenghiùComm (talk) 20:07, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

там же написано, вы английский не понимаете? Потому что она из БСЭ, а это не значит, что она не защищена авторским правом, а также потому, что она маленькая и черно-белая, а зачем такие нужны, если есть эта же скульптура большая и цветная. И что это за "Либо-либо". Не буду снимать. --Shakko (talk) 19:48, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Когда я вешала эту фотографию никаких цветных не было. И я решила другим интересующимся искусством и особенно студентам, как я, облегчить жизнь. Это очень помогает в процессе обучения. И потом - много не мало, чем больше изображений предметов искусства, тем лучше. Но если вам хочется удаляйте... Английский я знаю, а также итальянский и французский, и еще понимаю и говорю на среднем уровне по польски и на литовском. А вы? Либо-либо значит не оставляйте пожалуйста без ответа. Надеюсь, что на все Ваши вопросы я ответила.

в чем проблема-то? вот в категории Category:Volkonskaya tombstone by Martos теперь много больших цветных вместо маленькой черно-белой загруженной вами. Маленькая черно-белая выставлена на удаление, потому что есть более качественные аналоги. Если бы их не было, ее бы никто не тронул.Shakko (talk) 09:41, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

About the portrait[edit]

Hello, Shakko, how are you? I still have the catalogue of the museum where the image was scanned from, but I'm afraid it doesn't provide enough information about the sitter. The catalogue has a quite informative note about the painter, but providse little information about the painting itself. It says: "Influenced by Realism and Impressionist style, Maliavine executed this portrait with apparent confidence and quickness. The composition is simple and stripped of decorative arrangements, being focused in the physiognomy of the model, positioned with evident comfort and naturalness. According to V. A. Lenyaishin, director of the Russian Museum of Leningrad, the painting is very representative of the typical portrait production of Maliavine in his artistic maturity.". According to the catalogue, the painting was donated to the museum by an anonymous collector of Rio de Janeiro in 1972. It is listed under the inventory number 1.974 P and dated of 1926. But there's no mention about who was the sitter. The catalogue is quite old (1985), so I sent an e-mail to the curatorial department of the Museu Nacional de Belas Artes asking if they have informations about the sitter. If I get an answer, I'll share it with you, ok? Greetings from São Paulo. Dornicke (talk) 00:00, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Добрый день :)[edit]

Как-то я не очень согласна с этой правкой, даже собственно ru:намитка была распространена не только в Белоруссии, но и довольно широко в Украине, южных областях России, Польше и части Литвы, а то, что в этой категории собрано, это даже не намитка, а скорее что-то вроде "головного убора замужних женщин полотенчатого типа" и широко встречалось по всей Западной и Восточной Европе в своё время. Настаивать не буду, но возможно, моё сообщение простимулирует пересмотр этой правки. С огромным уважением и пожеланиями всего наилучшего :)--Хомелка (talk) 10:06, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Category:Saint Faith[edit]

Saint Faith lived in Agen, France (Gaul) and died ca. 300 A.D., while "Faith, Hope, Love and their mother Sophia" lived in Rome and died more than a century earlier. Some down the centuries have confused Faith of Aquitaine and Faith of Rome, but I don't think we want to do so. AnonMoos (talk) 12:47, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

So we should separate it, naming her Saint Faith of France and keep simply Saint Faith as page of disambig, maybe? 'Cos also exist personification of virtue Faith, and she also is saint. --Shakko (talk) 12:52, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
The majority of images in the category now are about Faith of Agen. Not sure why there has to be a separate category about Faith of Rome, since she almost always appears as part of a trio. AnonMoos (talk) 13:19, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Hello,

I have seen that you have uploaded a lot a pictures in Category:Objects in Moscow State Historical Museum, so maybe you can help me. I have uploaded ~50 photos on this category (the ones with a "Moscow State Historical Museum - IMG 3XXX.JPG" name), but I can't identify and/or categorize them. I have already checked the museum website, but it's not very usefull. I can't speak Russian either, so there is nothing more I can do by myself.

I don't know if you can identify some of them by yourself, but maybe you can ask on the Russian Wikipedia if some specialist can do it. I can't speak Russian, so I can't find and/or ask the place where to do it.

Я уверен. И так написано во всех известных мне источниках и в нашей статье в Википедии. Ну уже просто потому, что особняк начали строить в 1852 году, а З.Н. родилась только в 1861 - его как минимум строили для кого-то другого ;) Т.е. З.Н. получила-таки его по наследству (как и все остальные владения Юсуповых), но это всё же не такой веский повод...--Kaganer (talk) 21:39, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Category probably should have been given a less emphatic name... AnonMoos (talk) 07:26, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

I can't be sure about the accuracy of term. All I know, that in Orthodox church the three angels visiting the Abraham is the personification of Trinity and it is calling "The Old Testament Trinity" (ru: Троица Ветхозаветная). Is it the same for Catholic and Protestant Church? If is not, the category should be cleaning to keep only the Orthodox images (icons and frescoes) and removing "realistig" Western art. Shakko (talk) 12:56, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
Probably "Category:Trinitarian iconography of Old Testament themes" would be a better name for a general category, and "Category:Orthodox icons of Abraham and the three angels" if you want a very narrow category. Some might object to "Old Testament Trinity" because there's no Trinity in the Old Testament according to the theology of their religious group. AnonMoos (talk) 17:52, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
"Old Testament Trinity icon" (ru: Троица Ветхозаветная) is the official term for icons depicting 3 angels and Abe, e.g see Rublev's icon. To call it "Orthodox icons of Abraham and the three angels" will be same mistake as call "Nativity" - "The delivery of child Jesus by woman named Mary" :). So maybe better to keep it. And if you feel sure about Western European art and term - do as you wish, I keep an eye only on Orthodox icons, basing on my education. --Shakko (talk) 18:02, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

RE: Icons by century[edit]

I'm sorry, but being Orthodox, icon is not just wooden paintings, but includes mosaics, frescoes etc... It includes everything back to the early days even in the catacombs. This isn't just our definition here in "American Orthodoxy", but is also the definition you'll find in Greece, where icons are also considered more than just iconography painted on wood, and includes anything in mosaic form, frescoes, cloth etc...

Refer to OrthodoxWiki:

http://orthodoxwiki.org/Icon

"Iconography (from Greek: εικoνογραφία) refers to the making and liturgical use of icons, pictorial representations of Biblical scenes from the life of Jesus Christ, historical events in the life of the Church, and portraits of the saints. Icons are usually two-dimensional images and may be made of paint, mosaic, embroidery, weaving, carving, engraving, or other methods. A person who practices the art of iconography is called an iconographer."


Also refer to Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Icon

"Icons may also be cast in metal, carved in stone, embroidered on cloth, painted on wood, done in mosaic or fresco work, printed on paper or metal, etc."


According to our definitions here in America, and with the English language, Icon refers to anything done to represent Orthodox religious figures and can be in almost any media. It may be a traditional icon on wood painted with egg tempera, or it might be something printed off a professional printer and laminated, or it might be something painted on pottery or clay, or it may be a mosaic, or it may be a fresco.

So therefore, I will not stop uploading frescoes and mosaics to that category, because according to our official definitions in the Orthodox Church, frescoes and mosaics are icons as well as those painted on wood.

Please, do not revert any of my edits in the future regarding this topic. You just reverted hours and hours of my work yesterday, and wasted it all, and I would appreciate avoiding this in the future. --OrthoArchitectDU (talk) 16:39, 19 July 2013 (UTC)


I agree with you about most of your points and understand the tree of categories. However, I will suggest that Orthodox frescoes & Orthodox mosaics be under the icons categories, because as I've pointed out, they are icons according to the definition, at least as it appears on Wikipedia (which Wikimedia is associated with). But then again, there are some Orthodox mosaics (like floor mosaics) that aren't icons, so it's hard to decide where to put it. Maybe putting it under Orthodox art is best. Even though frescoes & mosaics are all regarded as icons, they aren't generally kissed and venerated actively like others, even though they receive the same respect.

Is it also possible to change the a category name like Category:13th-century icons into Category:13th-century Orthodox icons, to make it consistent with it's sub-categories? That would also make sure it stays distinct.

I caught my error with the whole Russian icons categories, and tried to fix what I could, to change them to Kievan Rus, but I'm afraid I didn't find them all. That was my mistake once I noticed why it was organized that way.

I strongly disagree with the statement that we can't refer to "Orthodoxy" prior to 1054, and I cannot and will not agree to that. It is appropriate to fit pre-1054 items into Orthodox categories, as well as Roman Catholic categories where they overlap. As an example, the mosaics within the ancient churches of Ravenna should be under both the Catholic mosaics category, and the Orthodox mosaics category.

To have them just under "Christian mosaics" is wrong because Christianity includes not just Orthodox & Roman Catholic, but also Protestants and other groups. It becomes confusing, especially for people. It also makes it look like Orthodoxy is just a denomination that was founded in the 11th Century, and that is absolutely not true.

That whole interpretation of referring only to Orthodoxy after 1054 smells terribly of Ecumenist heresy. It acts like we never existed prior to 1054. The simple fact is that we did, and the Church of Rome was part of us. We can claim everything they had prior to 1054 and they can claim everything we had prior to 1054. Besides which, that rule has already been broken because most Orthodox categories have 10th Century categories, which is 901-1000 CE.

--OrthoArchitectDU (talk) 20:13, 21 July 2013 (UTC)


I wasn't really forming my own definition, but going by how it is defined on the Wikipedia article. But nevertheless.

How about, for all Christian art, use Category:Christian art

Then, from 1st to 3rd Century (33-300 CE), we have everything in the Paleo-Christian category here: Category:Paleochristian art

Then, for everything from the 4th Century on (301 CE-Present), we add two more categories, Category:Eastern Christian art and Category: Western Christian art.

Within these, have Catholic art & Orthodox art. Within those sections, have a note linking to the other category, clarifying that art from the other tradition prior to 1054/1204 may also be claimed by both groups.

However, allow pre-11th Century Orthodox and Catholic art in those sections, as long as they are respective to their jurisdiction at the time, so pre-schism Orthodox art has to be of the Four Eastern Pentarchs. This will allow work such as Hagia Sophia to be included in the Orthodox section.

Just as a last, minor note, as far as I know from my research, Ravenna was mostly orthodox, it was just the Arian Baptistery and Arian Cathedral (currently Spirito Santo) that were Arian, the other churches, Galla Placidia, San Vitale, San Giovanni Battista, Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, Sant'Apollinare in Classe, San Francesco, San Giovanni Evangelista etc... were all orthodox. --OrthoArchitectDU (talk) 21:17, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

The poem you link me would take much time to litterally translate to English.. it is hard to understand for an Italian too.. it basically says that Nano Morgante is smarter that this, funnier than that.. are you sure you need complete translation? Let me know... I am working hard in these days.. I have about 2-3 thousands to new pictures to upload! PS: I also have some picturs of the original statue of Nano Morgante, they just showed it in an exhibiution (the one on the fountain in Boboli is a copy!) --Sailko (talk) 15:14, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Of course I will for you ;) --Sailko (talk) 11:04, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

Category:Icons in Museum «Rescued Art Values»[edit]

Добрый день, спасибо за эту категорию. Я грузила эти иконы с мыслью по окончании показать их вам. Почему-то мне казалось, что они могут быть вам интересны. А тут вы сами их нашли. Бытовая магия :). Немного позже будет продолжение икон, которые я фотографировала в Национальном историческом музее Республики Беларусь, там уже не указано было, из какого они музея, но происхождение большинства - Россия. Если хотите, могу потом обратить ваше внимание на них.--Хомелка (talk) 22:23, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

рада)) очень красивые. Вы молодец! кстати, рекомендую вам для обработки программу[22]. В ней не только удобно обрезать и массово переименовывать, вдобавок, там еще можно корректировать перспективные искажения очень быстро. --Shakko (talk) 22:26, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
Я готова бродить по музеям, приносить по несколько сотен фотографий картин и скульптур, грузить их поштучно и давать каждой максимум нужных категорий, но совершенно не люблю обрабатывать фотографии. Поэтому гружу как есть в полный размер и радуюсь, когда их доводят до ума. Но нельзя же без недостатков :)--Хомелка (talk) 22:29, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
я тоже ненавижу обрабатывать фотографии. Но эта штука реально доставляет удовольствие, даже для просмотра папок удобней :) Try! Ну и лишние края в 1 клик обрезает. --Shakko (talk) 22:34, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
Вот по поводу этой иконы я не соглашусь, что она из России. Это Ветковская школа, там икона была нарисована, там всю жизнь и провела. Хоть Ветка и входила в Российскую империю, но не в Россию. Так что думаю, что эту категорию стоит убрать--Хомелка (talk) 13:36, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Спектакли[edit]

Привет. Хочу посоветоваться как с человеком разбирающимся в искусстве больше моего. Я хотел сделать категоризацию фотографий со спектаклей, но столкнулся с трудностями перевода. Есть разные варианты performance, play, show, spectacle. Как лучше назвать категорию со спектаклями на английском? --Butko (talk) 11:10, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Наверное, performance - более общее название. Правильно туда будет включать театральные спектакли, балет, оперу, цирковые представления? --Butko (talk) 11:14, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

witgchoura[edit]

Hallo Shakko, can you help me? I have an English text, do you find another transcription for the word "witgchoura", so I can google it in English or German? The whole sentence is: When the Austro-Italien war brought Bonaparte's troops in contact with the Russian regiments, commanded by field-marshal Suworow, who had introducted the witgchoura, the fashion soon spread to Paris.

I found the word as witchoura also in Spain - but do not speak Spanish... I found one as Witschura in German, but not very helpfull there. Thank you! --Kürschner (talk) 22:09, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Italian museums open to photographers[edit]

Hi Shakko! How are you? I tried to send you a message on FB but I don't know if you saw it. Recently Italian Museums opened to private photography, just like in France (or Russia).. it is such a great change me and my friends don't even know where to start... there's something I want to tell you, so please send me an email or get in touch privately! Ciao! --Sailko (talk) 14:04, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

И не только итальянские[edit]

Есть и в России музеи. --PereslavlFoto (talk) 17:08, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

A question[edit]

My English is very poor, excuse me. Why did you do a category of Austria Infantes? I don't understand it. I do not think that it is necessary to make this category. The Spanish Catholic Monarchy is only although it change the House. ¡Viva Rusia! --Parair (talk) 20:06, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Royal Collection[edit]

Hello! Thank you for all of your uploads from the Royal Collection (UK). I think they are wonderful. Would you consider adding these images to Category:Images from the Royal Collection of the United Kingdom as well as the other RC subcategories? This indicates that the itself image came from the RC website (as opposed to a photograph taken by a tourist, for example, or scanned from a book). Also, are you familiar with the {{creator}} and {{artwork}} templates? There is also {{photograph}}, which you might find useful. Let me know if I can help you with any of these. Laura1822 (talk) 21:22, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

  • ok. I'll try not forget about this detail. --Shakko (talk) 21:35, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I was just looking at your list of collection of errors of portrait models. I like these sorts of puzzles too. I have come across several of these kinds of mistakes and corrected them. Is your page for Russian only or can I add my finds too? Or is there another page in English, or should I make my own? Laura1822 (talk) 21:43, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Let's do the international one? If you'll help me with my English mistakes, I can translate my collection from Russian. --Shakko (talk) 21:47, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

File:Lampi Catherine II of Russia.jpg -> Catherine II of Russia by J.B.Lampi (c.1791, Palace on the Water)[edit]

Could you please give rationale for the name change? It is the only change that you have made without apparent reason, what was wrong with previous name? Vert (talk) 18:39, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

The reason of renaming: in Category:Catherine II by Lampi we have more than dozen portraits of same iconography of same person (Catherine) by same painter (Lampi). Renamed adding the date and museum to mark the difference. Please note format "name+author+date+museum" is much better for filenaming at Commons than simply "name+author". By the way, in version "Lampi Catherine II of Russia" nobody can guess what means "Lampi" (he's not Raphael or Rubens). Even the version "Catherine II of Russia by Lampi" is better. --Shakko (talk) 18:49, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Discussion should be in one place. The difference is reflected in file description, if someone can't guess what means "Lampi" he/she can refer therein. There is no need for file name to provide full description. Vert (talk) 19:02, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
as you can see in Category:Catherine II by Lampi we have more than dozen portraits of same iconography of same person (Catherine) by same painter (Lampi). Renamed adding the date and museum to mark the difference. Do you have any other methods or we should rename them all to "Lampi Catherine II of Russia 01", "Lampi Catherine II of Russia 02", "Lampi Catherine II of Russia 03". It will be better, ah?
Using the preposition "by" shows the respect to other users, even using hyphen ("Lampi - Catherine II of Russia") is better than in previous version. --Shakko (talk) 19:26, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Respect? so maybe you should ask the file uploader whether your modifications are adequate? I strongly don't think so!!! Vert (talk) 21:50, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
I am sorry to upset you, this is such a small thing, isn't it? This is first time for my 7 years at Commons with such problem from another user. It is according to the rule of project en:Wikipedia:Be bold. There is another rule - en:Wikipedia:Ownership of articles. Nobody ever asked the permission to rename files here, you don't own them here, remember? I didn't vandalize it. I didn't even photoshoped it - as I did with another Lampi's "Catherine". It is free lisense here, you know. Do whatever you wants if it will make things better. The author will be asked only when file is nominated to deletion. Once again I'm sorry. --Shakko (talk) 22:19, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
ha, you're even aren't the uploader of of it. Am I the telepat? Should I ask every editor of a file? --Shakko (talk) 22:19, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Category: Why?[edit]

Why new category of Infantes and Infantas of Spain? --Parair (talk) 00:31, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

No sé inglés. No lo entiendo. Es una categoría inútil. Porque (because) todos los Infantes pertenecen a una misma Monarquía. Es la misma Casa de la Monarquía católica. --Parair (talk) 12:46, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

York Art Gallery paintings[edit]

Hi Shakko, I notice that you've been uploading quite a few paintings from the ArtFund website, including some in the York Art Gallery. I just thought you might like to know that York Museums Trust has an online collection which has much higher quality versions of most of the Public Domain paintings and lots of information. I hope you find it useful, please use the template: {{YMT Online Collections}} to help the trust track their images. Also, get in touch if there are any other fine art resources in Yorkshire you might want help with. I'm coordinating the GLAMwiki Network Project here and am keen to help! Thanks, PatHadley (talk) 11:59, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Category:Tobias and Sarrah[edit]

Hi Shakko, you have created the Category:Tobias and Sarrah a couple of years ago. As far as I know, Sar(r)ah is commonly written as Sarah with one r. You created the category with a double r in her name. Is this done with a reason or just a spelling error? Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 15:39, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

no, you are right, second "r" was given in Bible only to Abraham's Sarah (as the gift), this one should be renamed. --Shakko (talk) 13:33, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Fëdor Ivanovič Šaljapin[edit]

Девочка или мальчик[edit]

Посмотрите, пожалуйста, Category:Fillette au cerceau by Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Нет ли здесь ошибки? Традиционно указывается, что это портрет 5-летнего мальчика, одетого по моде тех лет в наряд девочки. Если это так, то категорию необходимо переименовать; к сожалению, не знаю как. --Andrey Korzun (talk) 22:22, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Shakko, another user has overwritten your version of this image. Did he ask you for that or do you agree to that or do you prefer that we revert to your version? --Túrelio (talk) 10:57, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Jean Bellegambe[edit]

Dear Shakko, I ran into the image of Jean Bellegambe, the Blood of Christ tryptich that you posted, and I would really appreciate if you had the reference of where is this painting located. I tried searching for more information on the image, but I have not had any luck, and maybe the location could help me in this quest. I would really appreciate it. Cristina.

Apparently, a private collection: Category:Mikhail Perchenko's collection.--Ymblanter (talk) 14:45, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Shakko. I've restored this and a few other of your uploads per the updated {{FoP-Russia}}. I've also restored all White House Moscow images, Ostankino Tower, Lenin's Tomb, and around 50 others. There's still many more to do, and I'll keep helping with these till they're all restored. I just hope we can get them back in articles on ru.wiki and others. I can do some on en.wiki. All the restorations are in my contributions, as I've got to individually tag each one, so anyone can see what files have been restored by me. Take care. INeverCry 01:24, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
