Art of Hawaii[edit]

That's okay. I know nothing about Hawaiian art, and don't have a strong opinion either way. You may find others object or question it in the future - the situation that you've described with respect to Hawaiian art isn't that unusual. But I am happy to defer to your judgment. However, you need to decide one way or another. Either the Hawaiian art category gets categorized in the general collections category, or it gets categorized with the American art - whichever you prefer. But as per COM:OVERCAT, you can't do both. So you just need to figure out which one makes the most sense in your view. Hope that helps. Best regards, --Skeezix1000 (talk) 14:35, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Please don't do this or this or this. These categories aren't restricted to paintings, so should never be subcategorized in parent categories pertaining solely to paintings. As per COM:CAT, categories "are categorized according to their subject, and not to their contents", so even if these categories only contained paintings (actually, they all contain more than just paintings), they should not be added to parent categories related solely to paintings because they are general art categories that are much broader than just paintings (they can contains sculptures, photographs, ceramics, etc.). If you don't understand/agree with the problem outlined in previous edit summaries, please ask for a better explanation or discuss the issue rather than blindly reverting without comment. Even if I don't delete the parent categories you've added, someone else eventually will. If you want to subcategorize these cats in Paintings in the Honolulu Academy of Arts, you will need to create subcats just for paintings. I'm happy to assist if you would like. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 15:17, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Himalayan Thankas[edit]

Wmpearl,

Thank you for putting the many Himalayan thankas on Wikimedia, they are stunning. I have a collection of my own of about 12 picked up in Ladakh, India while I lived there. I hope I am in the right place to get this message to you and this is all new to me, photographs from Wikimedia. I am writing several e-books which will be published soon and would like to put some of the thanka pictures in the book along with my own pictures. I will be more than happy to give a link back to Wikimedia concerning the photographs and of their origin, giving credit where credit is due. Please let me know how to go about this. If possible you can reach me at my e-mail address, it may be a little easier for me. I am in the process of understanding how to go through the maze of Wikimedia.

Sincerely,

Lance

Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

Hawaii Juliana Alapai portrait[edit]

Do you know if you could get a photograph of the portrait of Juliana Alapai that hangs at Queen Emma's Summer Palace in Hawaii?--KAVEBEAR (talk) 08:22, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but I have no idea.

File:US_Masi_seal_Lewis_skippet.jpg[edit]

Hi... I reverted this upload, since you uploaded on top of another, existing image. That is almost never the proper way to do things; rather it should be uploaded as its own image so that both are available. I'd love to know more about your photo -- is it on permanent display, and what information is there about where it came from? It's a great photo too. I presume though that it was a different skippet than the existing photo you uploaded over. It looks to be gold in your photo... most of them were silver, but a couple meant for use with Japanese treaties were gold. Was that the actual color, or is that more of a lighting thing? Anyways... I reverted the existing photo, and the file description, so as to keep the existing one under that old name. I would be happy to upload your version for you under a different name, and add the info and license you supplied with your upload, but I thought I'd check to see if you wanted to do it first, so it would be your username on the upload. Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:12, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Ah good, I see you uploaded File:Silver skippet made by Seraphim Masi, c. 1845-1871, De Young Museum.jpg. I'm fairly sure that skippet was a bit later one made by the Lewis company, not the Masi company (though of course they followed the Masi design). Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:27, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

File:Daughters of Revolution by Grant Wood, 1932.jpg[edit]

If he died in 1942, then the PD-70 rule won't technically apply until Jan 1st. 2013, and in some cases it's irrelevant to works first made/published in the U.S. anyway... AnonMoos (talk) 04:53, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Yes, but copyright-free status doesn't kick in until Jan. 1st of the following year. And for works first made/published in the U.S., the rules can be quite a bit more complex (not as simple as a blanket 70-year rule) anyway. AnonMoos (talk) 20:32, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Cheers for the wonderful pictures of art you've contributed to Commons - I've had recently the pleasure to work on many of them to add the Artwork or Art Photo template - they are beautiful and you really work "like a pro" , but maybe you are ;) Hsarrazin (talk) 09:19, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

File:'The Zaporozhye Cossacks Replying to the Sultan' by Paul Porfiroff.JPG[edit]

Hello,

Are you sure the painter is Porfiroff ? it is the twin image of the Repin one File:Ilja Jefimowitsch Repin 009.jpg - or is it a copy ?

Thank you for helping me documenting it correctly :) --Hsarrazin (talk) 19:10, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Template:Artwork/doc[edit]

Hi Wmpearl, please use this template, thanks. see File:A Faun and His Family with a Slain Lion by Lucas Cranach the Elder, Getty Center.JPG, File:Christ on the Cross by El Greco, Getty Center.JPG--Oursana (talk) 08:36, 20 May 2013 (UTC) Hi Wmpearl, it would be very helpful if you could edit your contrubutions with this template, because of harmonisation and because it gives more details on paintings, don't you agree? Best regards --Oursana (talk) 11:48, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Template Art Photo[edit]

Hi, Wmpearl! For images such as File:'Mrs. Francis Gregg and her Son George' by Thomas Lawrence, Cincinnati.jpg you could use the template {{Art Photo}}, which is a combination of {{Artwork}} and {{Photograph}}. It is a great choice for the photos you take of paintings, because it allows you to provide information on the underlying artwork as well as the photographer (yourself) and the photograph itself. I've been using the Artwork template for a long time, but just discovered the Photograph and the Art Photo templates. The advantages to using templates is that they provide not only details and consistency, but they can be internationalized/translated. There are several sub-templates, such as Creator, Institution, and Technique, plus more basic templates such as size, date, otherdate, etc. I'll be glad to work with you to learn how to use them: like many things on Wikipedia and Commons, they look a little daunting at first, but become easy with a little practice, and you can often find other works to copy/paste examples from. I'll take a crack at Mrs. Gregg. Let me know what you think. BTW I think your contributions to Commons are fantastic! Laura1822 (talk) 19:11, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Wmpearl! I saw that you uploaded a far larger and improved version of File:Oscar Pereira da Silva - Desembarque de Pedro Álvares Cabral em Porto Seguro em 1500.jpg. From where did you take it? Regards, --Lecen (talk) 17:05, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

It looks great. Did you take other pictures as well?

File:'Portrait of Timoteo Ha'alilio by an unknown artist', Bishop Museum.JPG[edit]

Is this Haalilio or Kamehameha III?

@Wmpearl:. I assume you are a resident of Hawaii with access to the Bishop Museum. Could you please help settle this dispute on File talk:Young Kamehameha III.jpg? Maybe a photo of the portrait with the sign you saw.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 04:52, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Identification of portrait[edit]

The painting is currently displayed in the Bishop Museum as "Portrait of Timoteo Ha'alilio by an unknown artist". I would assume that this represents the latest scholarship, and should supersede older descriptions. Wmpearl (talk) 19:31, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
