Jourdain, Frantz Calixte Raphaël

Jourdain, Frantz Calixte Raphaël (1847–1935). Antwerp-born architect and writer. He was influential as the designer of the Art Nouveau La Samaritaine Department Store in Paris (1905–10), extended by him in 1914 and 1926–8. He saw Art Nouveau as the C19 equivalent of C18 French Rococo, and argued for gracious ornament to bring elegance to buildings. His fulminations against a slavish adherence to Beaux-Arts Classicism before 1914 were influential at the time, and were associated with the search for a renewal of French culture. His son, Francis (1876–1958), was an important interior designer of the Modern Movement, exhibiting at the Paris exhibitions of 1925 and 1937.

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.
