Gameren, Tilman

Gameren, Tilman or Gameren, Tylman van (c.1630–1706). Dutch architect and painter, he became the foremost C17 Baroque architect in Poland, having been invited (c.1660) to settle there, and took the surname Gamerski. He designed the villa at Puławy (1671–2), the first with a pediment on an Order in Poland. Three rooms designed by him for the pavilion within the Ujazdów area survive in the łazienki Palace, and he was also responsible for the Church of the Nuns of the Holy Sacrament in Warsaw's New Town (1688–92— one of the most perfect centralized churches in Europe), and for the Bernardine Church at Czerniaków, Warsaw (1687–92—on a Greek-cross plan with octagonal sanctuary). His Krasiński Palace, Warsaw (1688–95), was an outstanding achievement, and incorporated a Giant Order for the first time in Poland. He designed some 75 buildings in all, and remodelled the Palace at Nieborów (1695–7).

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.
