Citing and proper use of art works in a paper:

At the end of your paper, after the last page of text and before the bibliography, you need to include an Appendix with images of all the art you refer to in your paper (core and comparative pieces). Each image should be labeled as “Figure 1”, “Figure 2”, and so on, according to the order that they appear in your paper. Each image should also be labeled with as much information about it as possible (Title, Artist, Medium, Museum) and the website the image came from as well as the date it was accessed. Then, when you refer to the image in your paper, you refer to it by title and also as “Figure 1.” FYI, titles of art works should be in italics.

See the following example:

In the paper:
Pablo Picasso’s painting, Guernica (Figure 1), expresses the chaos of the Spanish Civil War. Many of Picasso’s other paintings, especially First Steps (Figure 2), explore the same theme of the disconnection of modern life.
In the Appendix:
