Figueroa, Leonardo de

Figueroa, Leonardo de (1650–1730). Baroque architect. All his known buildings are in Seville, Spain, and feature yellow or white cut brickwork framed with red, glazed tiles. He favoured Solomonic columns, estípites, elaborately contorted cornices, and much statuary and carved decoration, all mingled in unbridled freedom, with occasional touches of mudéjar ornament. Examples of his designs include the Hospital de los Venerables Sacerdotes (1687–97) and the Churches of La Magdalena (1691–1709) and San Salvador (1696–1711). He was responsible for the west door of San Telmo (1724–34), and may have designed the outstandingly ornate and centralized Church of San Luis (1699–1731—in which influences from Borromini and Rainaldi may be detected). His son, Ambrosio (1700–75), also worked in an ornate Baroque style in Seville (he designed Santa Catalina (1732) ), and his grandson, Antonio Matías (c.1734–c.96), was responsible for the campanile of La Palma del Condado (c.1780).

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.
