Dahlerup, Jens Vilhelm

Dahlerup, Jens Vilhelm (1836–1907). Danish architect. A pupil of Hetsch and Nebelong, he was also influenced by the works of T. von Hansen and Schinkel, but turned more to a rich Italian Renaissance style, persuaded in that direction by the works of Semper. His reputation was quickly established, and he designed numerous important buildings: among them the Agriculture School at Lyngby, the Royal Theatre, Copenhagen (1872–4—with Ove Petersen), the Pantomime Theatre, Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen (1870s), the New Carlsberg Brewery Building (1880–3), the Jesuskirken at Valby, the Royal Museum of Art (1888–95—with Georg Møller), the Glyptoteket (1891–5), and many private houses in and around Copenhagen. The Vejlefjord Sanatorium (1899) was also built to his designs. He was one of the last of the academic architects of Historicism in Denmark, but something of a virtuoso in his use of that architectural language.

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.
