Images from Wikidata not displayed on artists' pages anymore?

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f756e8515c0>

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that if an entity (e.g. an artist) has a Wikidata link, and an image is available through Wikidata, that image used to be displayed in the upper right-hand corner of the artist’s page.

Used to - but this is not the case anymore. Or is my memory playing tricks on me?

I think I remember seeing the image from Wikidata https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1427816 on artist page of Madrugada. Similar thing with Saint John’s Church in Gdańsk, I think the image from https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1669899 was initially displayed when I added this place, but not anymore.

For the record, I’m using Firefox 68.1.0 ESR, and I’m not seeing the images even with a fresh profile (so without adblockers or browser settings that could break the way the page is displayed).

I see. Thanks for the link.
Too bad. This is why we can’t have nice things…
