Antoine, Jacques-Denis

Antoine, Jacques-Denis (1733–1801). French architect, active in the Louis Seize period, appointed in 1766 to build the severely Neo-Classical Hôtel des Monnaies (the Mint), Quai de Conti, Paris (1768–75), reckoned by Quatremère de Quincy to be one of the finest French public buildings. He completed the Barrières des Fermiers Généraux (toll-gates), Paris, after Ledoux was dismissed in 1787. His town-houses for the aristocracy, including the rigorously plain Hôtel Brochet de Saint-Prest, now École des Ponts-et-Chaussées (c.1768–74), and the Hôtel de Jaucourt, Rue de Varennes (1770), as well as his country residences, among which may be mentioned the Château de Herces in Berchères-sur-Vesgres, near Houdan (1770–2), are in a strict Neo-Classical style. As architect to the Révérends Pères de la Charité, he built hospitals, including the Hôpital de la Charité, Paris (c.1760s), probably the first building with a baseless Greek Doric portico in the French capital.

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.
