Jeckyll, Thomas

Jeckyll, Thomas (or Thomas Jeckell), (1827–81). English architect and pioneer of Japonaiserie: he designed (1876) the ‘Peacock Room’ at 49 Princes Gate, London, decorated by Whistler, now in the Freer Gallery, Washington DC, so was an important figure in the Aesthetic Movement. His ecclesiastical work often consisted of draconian and insensitive ‘restorations’, and his new churches lacked authority: St Mary, Stapleford Abbots, Essex (1862), was regarded by Pevsner as ‘hideous’. Other works include the remarkable polychrome First Pointed Methodist Church, Holt (1862–3), and the plain Holy Trinity Church, Hautbois (1864), both in Norfolk. He also designed a group of villas at 118–120 Queenstown Road, Battersea, London (1875). An eclectic designer, his work perhaps deserves more attention than it has enjoyed. He became mentally unstable, and by 1876 was insane, dying in the madhouse.

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.
