HiEdit

Just want to say, great photographs - thank you for contributing! :D Lamiai (talk) 02:42, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Cathédrale Notre-Dame de ChartresEdit

Hi Mattis, I have made a suggestion at the talk page to move this gallery page to Chartres Cathedral as the associated category moved as well (which was, however, not my doing). I would appreciate your opinion and will not do anything without consensus. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 06:06, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Saints Hyacinth and Protus, BlislandEdit

Hi Mattis, I think you have confused St Protus with St Probus in your photos of the church in Blisland, Cornwall. Both are Cornish saints. I have added The church of Saints Hyacinth and Protus in Blisland, Cornwall, England. as a description in your photos on Commons, but they are still in a mis-named category. Best wishes.

Johann Josef Anton HuberEdit

Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Johann Josef Anton Huber (Painter))

Do you remember? Johann Josef Anton Huber born in Augsburg. He was the painter of the freskos in St. George Ochsenhausen. Greetings--Bene16 (talk) 19:14, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

I didn't know that he was the painter there. It is always nice to know. Thanks. Do you know who painted the frescos in Kloster Raitenhaslach? There no information about this kloster in Wiki English.

Cheers. --Mattis (talk) 23:26, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

The Painter was the most well known Johann Baptist Zimmermann [1]. Greetings to England--Bene16 (talk) 08:40, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Basilika OttobeurenEdit

Hey Mattis. I want just say a little thanks for categorizing all those Pictures from the Basilika Ottobeuren. Greetings --Mrilabs (talk) 18:03, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Oh yes, for me it's the most beautiful church i've ever seen. Next time I must go to Ottobeuren on good weather to take some shots from the outside. But the Cranes for the renovation are really destroing those beautiful view :-( Greetings from Augsburg/Memmingen --Mrilabs (talk) 21:17, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Celtic GravesEdit

The dead celtic person (on the right side)

Hey Mattis, short time ago i wrote something about twentythree three thousand year old celt graves [2] near the place where i daily sleep, i ' ve forgot to show you when you where on visit in Germany. But i will show it to you during your next visit. shure. Greetings to good old England.--Bene16 (talk) 22:17, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

ApologiesEdit

I am sorry that I offended you. I apologise for erroneously correcting you over the naming f the images of Lincoln Cathedral.

As for the optical corrections, you refer to "frustration".... well yes, I find it extremely frustrating when people take good and useful photographs and then make them virtually unusable by digitally "correcting" them. T

This "corrections" stuff goes on and on, on Commons. When I look at the hundreds of images of paintings, drawings and prints that are "corrected" by people who are completely unfamiliar with the state of the originals, and then load them over the top of a more accurate version, I find it really frustrating. I don't usually know it is happening until I look at an article that I have written and find that a sepia drawing by Leonardo has suddenly turned black, red and green, or that the sky behind the Mona Lisa appears to have been painted in cobalt blue.

By the way, if you happen to have an unadjusted version of the Caen facade, could you let me know, as that would be very useful!

I'll try to be politer, next time. Amandajm (talk) 02:48, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Portinari AltarpieceEdit

A couple of years back you created a Category called 'Category:Triptychs in the Netherlands Category:Hugo van der Goes' and put the Portinari Altarpiece into it, under the name of the "Portinari triptych" . There are two problems.

  1. The work hasn't been in the Netherlands since 1475
  2. It is never referred to as the "Portinari Triptych" except on Wikipedia! The work is known as the "Portinari Altarpiece".

I have enquired several times as to how one gets to be the person who sorts categories. I have also asked how one goes about renaming misnamed files. I've been around for five years and never solved either of these mysteries. Meanwhile, as a prolific writer of major art and architecture articles, I am continually frustrated by errors.

How does one get to create and rename misnamed categories, and rename misnamed files? I would appreciate your advice.

ThanksEdit

Hi Mattis, thank you for the wonderful photos from Spanish monasteries.--Acoma (talk) 20:26, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

ChurchesEdit

Hi Mattis, I've seen you did some nice work adding a template to Category:Pfarrkirche St. Ulrich in Gröden, but out from nowere comes the title Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Indeed the sepulchre is shown in the church only at eastertime as in most of Tyrolean churches. The church is dedicated to the Epiphany ant to St. Ulrich of Augsburg. Is there a way to correct the denomination? regards --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 18:44, 4 November 2011 (UTC)


Permission request to use one of your pictures in a textbookEdit

I would like to include your picture of the chorus wall at Amiens http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Amiens_cathedral_026.JPG in an architecture textbook. It would be printed at about 1/15 of a page.

I wanted to check that would be OK with you. The picture would be credited in the legend immediately below --the credit could show your real name and any other location/contact information you would like to add. Just in case, my e-mail is thechabon ATTTT hotmail DOTTTT com.

Catedrales de EspañaEdit

Hola Mattis:

¿Por qué estás incluyendo todas las catedrales de España dentro de la categoría "Cathedrals in Spain", cuando ya están distribuidas por comunidades autónomas españolas? Creo que deberías replantearte lo que estás haciendo. Sería más interesante, que las organizaras por siglo de construcción o por estilo artístico. Un cordial saludo:--Raimundo Pastor (talk) 22:05, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Mattis: solamente he encontrado 4 catedrales que no tenían asignada su respectiva comunidad autónoma, y ya lo he arreglado. Insisto en que deberías quitar la categoría "Cathedrals in Spain" de cada una de las catedrales, ya que están asignadas regionalmente. Un cordial saludo:--Raimundo Pastor (talk) 21:07, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Tue modifiche su Category:San Lorenzo (Casteldilago) - InteriorEdit

Ciao Mattis, perdonami ma non ricordo se capisci l'italiano, nel caso proverò a riscrivere in inglese. Non penso sia corretto mettere una sottocategoria sugli affreschi dalla categoria di un interno di una chiesa perché se ora contiene solamente foto degli affreschi non è detto che in futuro qualcuno possa passare e fotografare altari, statue, quadri su tela, tabernacoli o qualsiasi altro arredamento sacro al suo interno. Sarebbe più corretto creare una categoria solo degli affreschi nella chiesa e quella sì può essere collegata direttamente alla categoria madre affreschi nel "comune di appartenenza". :-)--Threecharlie (talk) 17:26, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, my English isn't good as a correct conversation... When you (and all) find e great number of singe subject my idea is the creation of a specific category called, in this case, Category:San Lorenzo (Casteldilago) - Frescos or Category:San Lorenzo (Casteldilago) - Interior, Frescos, and this and after transferring related images can be a sub-category of Category:Frescos in Casteldilago. Think you agree this solution? And although I have helped with Google Traslate, I was able to explain to me? Greetings from Rovigo :-)--Threecharlie (talk) 17:56, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Hallo, Mattis,

in Deiner Institution:St. Kastulus, Moosburg an der Isar verwendest Du das Bild Moosburg an der Isar, St Kastulus 001.JPG. Kleiner Hinweis: Dieses Bild zeigt nicht das Kastulusmünster, sondern die daneben stehende Johanniskirche.

Author and copyright Rome, Chiesa di Santa Maria in Vallicella?Edit

Dear Mattis,

Thank you for your nice photo's of this church. You say you are the author. But that means you made the paintings and the organ?

  • Author: Perhaps you mean {{unknown|author}} or just a blank, because the author will be known. For instance: File:Rome, Chiesa di Santa Maria in Vallicella 014.JPG. You already have written: source mine.
  • Copyright: according to European copyright, you don't have the copyright, a photograph of a 2-dimensional old art object without new creativity does not get copyright, it's an old artwork, so {{PD-Art-100}} instead of CC-license.

Kind regards, Hansmuller (talk) 14:12, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

You wrote: Hello... Thanks for the info. I guess the pictures I took are about the paintings and their components (i.e., frame, altar, chapel, etc.) not the sole paintings themselves that cropped everything around it off. That's why I think I can say I am the 'author' of the images -- not the paintings I took of course. Cheers --
You really are not the author, you are only the photographer, you make a non-original copy, a copyist has no copyright - that's the law, i am not kidding! And if the artist is less than 70 year deceased, the picture must be taken down. You really should use PD-art or something like that when you take a picture of old art. Then its Public domain, not CC-BY-SA. The copyright on old art has gone. I hope somebody can add the author. Cropping is not creating. Kind regards, Hansmuller (talk) 14:46, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
PS1. We all make these mistakes, in my recent mass uploads the license is also wrong because of a misunderstanding with Dutch OTRS ..;-) Hansmuller (talk) 15:13, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
Please keep the discussion here, that's the rule i thought. For non-original images see, e.g. w:en:Wikipedia:Image_use_policy#Public_domain. It is the same in Europe. Of course you made the photograph and you are the source, but you're not the author of the depicted work, so the field "author" should be reserved for the painter, organ builder etc.
Yes, it is a mess on Wikipedia, contributors don't know the law. In the recent upload File:Budapest courbet.JPG the author is OK, but the license not: CC instead of PD-Art-100, Courbet being long gone, and his inheritors claim also after 70 years after his death. If we make a photocopy, scan or photograph, we don't get rights on the work we copy, and neither on the copy, i'm sorry.. Regards, Hansmuller (talk) 15:43, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
