Type the artist's last name, followed by the artwork's name, in the main body of the text. The artwork's name should be in italics. Integrate these elements so that they flow with the rest of the text. This will be enough to identify the work in the list of works cited at the end of your paper.
Write the artist's name with the surname first and the first name last, placing a comma in between them and a period at the end. Add them to the end of the research paper in the list of works cited. Arrange the entire list alphabetically according to the last names of the authors and artists of the referred works.
Type the title of the piece being referenced in italics after the artist's name. Put a period at the end.
Write the year of the work's creation and put a period at the end. If you don't know the year, write N.d. to stand for "no date."
Type the medium of the image and put a period at the end. For example, the artwork might be oil on canvas, marble or lithograph on paper.
Write the collection or the museum where the artwork is displayed, type a comma, then give the name of the city. Type in a final period. In some instances, the collection may be unknown or unwilling to be identified. In this case type the phrase Private collection without a city name.
