Starov, Ivan Yegorovich

Starov, Ivan Yegorovich (1745–1808). Russian architect. A pupil of de Wailly (1762–8), he introduced a sophisticated French Neo-Classicism to his native land, notably with his church and belfry at Nikolskoe (1774–6—partly destroyed) and the Tauride Palace, St Petersburg (from 1783), with its grand Catherine Hall flanked by Ionic columns. Among his other works the Alexander Nevsky Monastery, St Petersburg (1776–90), and the great house at Pella (1785—destroyed) deserve mention. In the 1770s, 1780s, and 1790s he was involved in urban improvements and in laying out new towns throughout the Empire.

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.
