Pückler-Muskau, Herman Ludwig Heinrich

Pückler-Muskau, Herman Ludwig Heinrich, ( Prince) von Fürst (1785–1871). German land-scape-designer. He inherited (1811) his vast estate at Muskau, and transformed it from 1816 into an enormous landscape garden, much influenced by what he had seen in England, and helped by J. A. Repton. He sold this estate in 1845, and created (1846–71) a spectacular garden at his family seat, Branitz, near Cottbus: he had lakes formed, and built numerous fabriques, including three pyramids, under one of which he himself was entombed. He also advised on various Prussian royal gardens, including those at Glienecke (again with J. A. Repton) and Babelsberg (the latter was mostly his work, from 1843), and was critical of Lenné's earlier approach. He also advised on public parks in Paris from 1852, and influenced both Haussmann and Alphand in this respect: the Bois de Boulogne owed much to him. He published his important Andeutungen über Landschaftsgärtnerei (Suggestions on Landscape Gardening) in 1834, which promoted Repton's ideas (among others), and had a powerful influence on American landscape architecture.

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.
