Endell, Ernst Moritz August

Endell, Ernst Moritz August (1871–1925). German Arts-and-Crafts architect and designer, connected with the Munich Sezession. His first significant architectural work was the Elvira Photographic Studio, Munich (1896–7), the façade of which was decorated with swirling masses of marine-like forms of stucco set beneath an Egyptian gorge-cornice: it was one of the most celebrated of Jugendstil designs. He developed a successful Berlin practice from 1901, and argued for sensitivity to spiritual values in Die Schönheit der grossen Stadt (The Beauty of the Large City—1908). He was a supporter of van de Velde's stance in favour of individualism in design against Muthesius's arguments for standardization in the 1914 debate within the Deutscher Werkbund. He moved to Breslau (now Wrocław) in 1918 to head the Academy of Art.

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.
