Citing Images

Image Citation Should Include:

  • Title of Work
  • Creator Name
  • Date created (year or range)
  • Dimensions (use what you find - no need to convert inches into meters)
  • Materials (oil on canvas, bronze, film, etc)
  • Repository (where the work resides: museum name, private collection, city located if architectural)
  • Image source (database, book, website)

The Chicago Manual of Style is the standard citation style for Art History, but ask your professor what they prefer. Use the links below to find citation examples.
