Voronikhin, Andrey Nikiforovich

Voronikhin, Andrey Nikiforovich (1759–1814). Born a serf on the Stroganov Estates near Perm, Russia, he received the patronage of his master, Count Aleksandr Sergeyevich Stroganov (1734–1811—possibly Voronikhin's father), who arranged for his formal education and travel. A pupil of de Wailly, he became one of Russia's most distinguished Neo-Classical architects after his return to his motherland in the 1790. His main works include the Stroganov Dacha, near St Petersburg (1796–8), the remodelling of the State-Rooms of Rastrelli's Stroganov Palace on the Nevsky Prospect, St Petersburg, after fire damage (1790s), the Cathedral of the Virgin of Kazan, St Petersburg (influenced by Soufflot's Panthéon in Paris—1801–11), and the severe Academy of Mines, with its huge dodecastyle Paestum Doric portico, also in St Petersburg (1806–11).

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.
