Rodríguez Tizón, Ventura

Rodríguez Tizón, Ventura (1717–85). Spanish architect of the late-Baroque period, whose work veered strongly in the direction of Neo-Classicism. He worked under Sacchetti on the Royal Palace, Madrid (1735–50), and then designed the Church of San Marcos, Madrid (1749–53—with a plan featuring interlocking ellipses partly derived from Juvarra's design for San Filippo Neri, Turin (1730–2), internal elevational treatments influenced by the work of Borromini, and a concave façade the disposition of which recalls that of Bernini's Sant'Andrea al Quirinale, Rome (1658–70) ). He fused Baroque and Neo-Classical themes at Pamplona Cathedral (designed 1783—with prostyle tetrastyle Corinthian portico set between two towers), but his College of Surgery, Barcelona (commissioned 1760) was severe and stripped, much influenced by French Neo-Classical theory. Among his other works may be cited the Baroque Chapel of the Virgin, Nuestra Señora del Pilar, Saragossa (1750), the Chapel of the Trasparente in Cuenca Cathedral (1753—influenced by Tomé's work at Toledo), and several churches in Andalucia.

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.
