Cecil is taking a short break and she will be back at Commons : don't know yet.

If people here hide behind No censure to violate the personality rights of others without any bad conscience than this is not a project where I like to contribute my images.

Giada, I'm not sure Cecil is around much at the moment. You should be fine to use that image. Commons content is freely re-usable. If you want to credit Commons for the re-use that might be nice, and would be appreciated, but as the image seems to be public domain I don't think there's an absolute requirement for you to do that. Thanks for the courtesy of enquiring. -- Begoon 13:50, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Thanks a lot Begoon. For sure I will credit Commons for the usage! :) --Axelhery (talk) 14:17, 16 February 2019 (UTC)Axelhery

You really don't need to credit anybody, not me, not Commons and not the Louvre. Somebody at the Louvre has digitalized it and while they are claiming copyright for the digital version, they can't really do that as it is a simple task for which that person didn't use their own creativity. If you want to credit somebody, then it should be Eugène Delacroix. If you downsize the image, then a link to Commons is appreciated so that people can find the full quality version, but that's about it. Linking to us for public domain images is not needed (unless you need to prove that it is public domain and nobody will doubt it in this case since the creator is famous). -- Cecil (talk) 09:50, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
