How to Cite Images in a Research Paper

While each professor may have a different preference for what information is needed in a citation, feel free to use this example as a guide.


                     (Fig. 19)
                      Joachim Wtewael, Adoration of the Shepherds, 1601.
                      Oil on canvas, 15.8 x 21.1 cm.
                      Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart, acc. 3408.


Art History Help

The Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History presents a chronological, geographical, and thematic exploration of global art history through The Metropolitan Museum of Art collection.

Find the Book with the Image

One very handy feature in the LUNA CCS Images for Teaching collection is the ability to find where the image came from.  First click on the image.  Most often, in the image metadata (attached information), you can find a book title and call number.  Then find the book in the CCS Library stacks!
