Raymond, Jean-Arnaud

Raymond, Jean-Arnaud (1742–1811). French architect. A pupil of J. -F. Blondel and Soufflot, he supervised the erection of some of Ledoux's Barrières around Paris from 1785, and designed the hôtel and gallery for Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun (1755–1842), the celebrated portrait-painter (1784–6). He became architect to the Louvre, Paris, in 1798, rendering parts of it suitably magnificent to provide a setting for the treasures looted by Napoleon from the rest of Europe, and was succeeded by Percier and Fontaine (1805). His main claim to fame was his association with Chalgrin in the early designs of the Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile, Paris (1805–6—engraved by L. -M. Normand), but he also contributed to works at the Bibliothèque Nationale and the Opéra, little of which has survived.

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.
