comment Can you define what a reference should say in clear text?
Given the flexibility of biblatex it seems to me that you shouldn't need to do this. Do you have a specific example of a particular entry type that you are having difficulty with? (i.e. a bit more detail on your painting example and what Mendelay gives you in the .bib file.)

comment How to manage big and smaller tables in LaTeX?
Note that using \resizebox will scale the text in your table; if your document requires a particular font size, this, like other font size changes, is not a viable option.
