Longuelune, Zacharias

Longuelune, Zacharias (1669–1748). French artist and architect. He worked on the Zeughaus (Arsenal), Berlin (c.1698), under de Bodt, travelled in Italy, and settled in Dresden in 1715, rising to become Oberlandbaumeister (Senior State Architect) in 1731. His best work was the formal park at Gross-Sedlitz (1723–6), and part of the Dutch Palace (later Japanisches Palais), Dresden (from 1729 with Pöppelmann). The Blockhaus (Log House—so called because a timber customs-house once stood on the site), Dresden-Neustadt (1728–31), employed his favourite devices of shallow ressaults, lesenes, and horizontal bands: it was completed by Knöffel. His designs in a rather dry French Classical style had some influence in Saxony and Poland, and he proposed schemes for an enormous Saxon Palace in Warsaw (1717—with Pöppelmann) and for Schloss Pillnitz, near Dresden.

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.
