Bordone, Paris

Paris Bordone (pä´rēs bōrdô´nā), 1500–1571, Venetian painter of the Renaissance; pupil of Titian. Skillful in his use of color, he was particularly interested in variations of texture in fabric, as seen in his numerous portraits (Brera, Milan; National Gall., London; Louvre; Uffizi; and Vienna). Bordone's conception of space changed from a precise rendering of architectural settings in his famous Fisherman Presenting the Ring to the Doge (Academy, Venice) to a more contorted mannerist treatment in Christ and the Doctors (Gardner Mus., Boston) and the Gloria (Academy, Venice). He created many sensual mythological paintings, including Diana and Minerva at the Forge of Vulcan (National Gall. of Art, Washington, D.C.).

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:
