How do I cite a visual work, such as a photograph, painting, or other artwork?


Each citation style has specific requirements for citing visual works. Generally, your citation will include this information, although the order of information and the formatting will differ from one style to the next:

  • artist(s)
  • title of the artwork
  • publication details, such as publisher, location, and date (for print sources) or website name and URL (for online sources)
