Tatham, Charles Heathcote

Tatham, Charles Heathcote (1772–1842). English architect. He worked for S. P. Cockerell and then for Henry Holland who helped him to visit Italy in 1794. There, he met many aristocrats and gentry on the Grand Tour, including Frederick Howard, 5th Earl of Carlisle (1748–1825), who became one of his main patrons. He made a study of Antique remains and ornament, later published as Etchings of Ancient Ornamental Architecture, etc. (1799–1800) and Etchings Representing Fragments of Grecian and Roman Ornaments (1806) which enjoyed considerable success and were used internationally as source-books for Neo-Classical design, notably by Hope, Percier, and Fontaine. His sculpture-gallery at Castle Howard, Yorks. (1800–2), was an early exercise in his severe Neo-Classicism, but his masterpiece is the primitive Graeco-Egyptian mausoleum at Trentham, Staffs. (1807–8), one of the most formidable Neo-Classical essays in England. He also designed a mausoleum at Ochtertyre, Perthshire (1809—Gothic).

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.
