Carlone Family

Carlone Family. Numerous family, originally from Lombardy, they worked as artists, masons, stuccoers, painters, and architects in Central Europe from C16 to C18. Among the most distinguished members were Carl(o) Martin(o) (1616–79), architect of the residence of the Esterházy family at Eisenstadt (1663–72), a vast Baroque palace built around a court of honour and embellished with twin towers. He also worked on the Hofburg (Imperial Palace) in Vienna. Carlo Antonio (1635–1708) planned (from 1686) the great Abbey of St Florian and the exquisite Pilgrimage Chapel at Christkindl (begun 1706), Upper Austria, both completed by his pupil Prandtauer. A. Silvestro Carlone (c.1610–71) was probably the architect of the façade of the Jesuitenkirche (Jesuit Church) ‘Am Hof’, or Neun Chören der Engel (Nine Choirs of Angels), Vienna (1662), with its projecting wings and a central balcony behind which the Baroque front of the church rises. This arrangement is partially derived from Mansart's Baroque Minimes Church, Paris, and integrates the front of the church with the flanking palatial façades. The façade is often attributed to Carlo Antonio Carlone.

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.
