André, Édouard-François

André, Édouard-François (1840–1911). French landscape-architect and writer. He assisted Alphand in laying out the parks of Paris, and worked with J. -P. Barillet-Deschamps (1824–75) on the creation of horticultural gardens at La Muette, Paris. On his own account he worked in England (e.g. Sefton Park, Liverpool (1867–72) ), The Netherlands (he revived the C17 style of Dutch gardens), Italy, and Lithuania (where he promoted English landscape design). He published L'Art des Jardins in 1879, in which many of the themes to be found in the English landscape garden were advocated for use in public parks.

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.
