Schnorr von Carolsfeld, Julius

Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (yōō´lyŏŏs shnôr fən kä´rôlsfĕlt), 1794–1872, German religious and historical painter and draftsman. He studied with his father, Veit Hans Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1764–1841), a painter and engraver, and in Vienna. In 1817 he went to Rome and joined the Nazarenes; with them he worked on the frescoes of the Villa Massimo, contributing his Orlando Furioso. In 1827 he was summoned by King Louis I of Bavaria to Munich, where he was professor and later director of the academy and decorated the palace with his Nibelungen frescoes. Schnorr is best known, however, for his vigorous drawings for the illustrated Bible, Bibel in Bildern (1851–60).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
