Canevale, Isidore Marcel Armand (1730–86). French architect. Trained under Servandoni, he settled in Austria in 1760, and worked as Court Architect in Vienna. Among his designs the triumphal arch in Innsbruck (1765) and various summerhouses, the Allgemeines Krankenhaus (1783), and the Military College of Surgery and Medicine (the Josephinum of 1783–5), all in Vienna, may be cited. His masterpiece is the Cathedral at Vác, Hungary (1763–77), the central dome, coffered ceiling, and vast Corinthian portico. of which are as advanced works of Neo-Classicism as anywhere else in Europe at that time. He designed gardens at Bernolákovo, Slovakia (1763), and Laxenburg, Austria (from 1782—in which the English style of landscape was employed).

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.
