Zholtovsky, Ivan Vladislavovich

Zholtovsky, Ivan Vladislavovich (1876–1959). Belorussian architect. He practised in Moscow from 1900, and was devoted to Classicism, translating Palladio's Quattro Libri into Russian (1936). He saw the Neo-Classicism of St Petersburg as the Russian style, but his fine Tarasov House, Moscow (1909–10), looked back to Palladio's Palazzo Thiene, Vicenza (c.1550). He designed the All-Russian Exhibition for Agriculture and Home Industries, Moscow (1922–3), firmly Classical in form; the Residence, Mokhovaya Street, Moscow (1932–4), based on the Giant Order arrangement of Palladio's Loggia del Capitaniato, Vicenza (1571–2); the Housing Complex, Bolshoi Kaluzhskoi, Moscow (1940–9); and the huge Apartment Block, Smolensk Square, Moscow (1947–53), a powerful Neo-Classical composition, the style of which was identified with Socialist Realism. After the death of Stalin (1953), Zholtovsky was denounced for his adherence to Classicism, but some of his works, especially the earlier buildings, were not without distinction.

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.
