Stasov, Vasily Petrovich

Stasov, Vasily Petrovich (1769–1848). Russian architect. A pupil of Bazhenov and Kazakov, he later travelled in France, England, and Italy, returning to Russia in 1808. He designed numerous buildings, some of which were clearly influenced by the severe Neo-Classicism of Ledoux. His Victualling-Store, Moscow (1821–35), was understated and plain, but his interesting cast-iron Moscow Gate, St Petersburg (1834–8), was a Greek Doric propylaeum of great nobility and power. He built several structures at Gruzino in the 1820s, including various towers and a church: the church-belfry (1822), not unlike Zakharov's Admiralty spire in St Petersburg, was destroyed in the 1939–45 war.

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.
