Visconti, Louis (Ludovico)-Tullius (Tullio)-Joachim

Visconti, Louis (Ludovico)-Tullius (Tullio)-Joachim (1791–1853). French architect of Italian ancestry. He trained under Percier, and designed some Parisian fountains in a robust Renaissance style, including the Fontaines Gaillon (1824–8), Louvois (1835–9), Molière (1841–8), Quatre Evèques (1842–4), and Saint-Sulpice (1845–8). He built several large houses, including the Hôtel Pontalba (1828). He is best known for two works: the New Louvre, Paris (begun 1852 but redesigned and completed by H. -M. Lefuel after Visconti's death); and the serene, magnificent, yet dramatic tomb of Emperor Napoleon I (1769–1821, reigned 1804–14 and 1815) under the Dôme of the Invalides (1841–53), one of the finest Neo-Classical creations in Paris. He designed a number of handsome tombs in Père-Lachaise Cemetery, Paris, notably the elevated sarcophagus of the Duc Decrès (1761–1821), Vice-Admiral of France.

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.
