Bon, Bono

Bon, Bono or Buon, Bartolomeo (c.1405–c.1467). Venetian architect and sculptor who worked with his father, Giovanni (c.1362–1443), on the celebrated Gothic palazzo known as the Ca'd'Oro (1421–40), and subsequently on the west wing (facing the Piazzetta) of the Doge's Palace (1424–43) in which their Gothic style reached perfection. The Porta della Carta (1438–43), which lies between the palace and the basilica, makes a transition between Gothic and early Renaissance. Bartolomeo was responsible for the west portals of Santi Giovanni e Páolo (1458–63) and San Cristofero Martire (also known as Madonna dell'Orto), both essentially Classical, as is his east end of the Porta della Carta, known as the Arco Foscari (c.1440–64/67). To judge from the lowest storey of the Ca'del Duca Sforza (now Palazzo Corner), the building (1456–7), had it been finished, would have been a very advanced and early Renaissance palazzo. Also attributed to him is the gateway of the Arsenal (1460), one of the earliest Renaissance structures in Venice.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
