Citing Images

If you use an image you did not create, you must provide a citation. Image citations can be formatted according to the citation style you are using.

Image citations should include the following information:

  • Artist's name
  • Title of the work
  • Date it was created
  • Repository information (museum, library, or other institution where the work is located)
  • City or country of origin
  • Dimensions
  • Material or medium (oil on canvas, marble, etc.)

If you found the image in a book, you will also need the author, title, publisher information, date, page, and figure or plate number of the reproduction.  If you found the image online, you will need an access date, the web site address (URL), and, in some cases, an image ID number.
