Petersen, Johan Carl Christian

Petersen, Johan Carl Christian (1871–1923). Danish architect and ceramic artist who was prominent in the Neo-Classical trend in that country from c.1910. He made an especial study of the works of C. F. Hansen and M. G. Bindesbøll. His best work is the exquisite Fåborg Museum, Funen (1912–15—with furniture by Kaare Klint (1888–1954)), in which the influence of the earlier masters is clear, and was a manifestation of the return to Neo-Classicism. He was a vigorous polemicist and prolific writer on architecture, notably in the journal Architekten. Some of his projects (e.g. the unrealized proposals for the old railway-station area of Copenhagen (1919—with Ivar Bentsen (1876–1943)) anticipate the Neo-Rationalism of Rossi and others in the 1970s.

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.
