How do I cite artwork I purchased from the artist who created it?

Cite artwork you purchased from the artist who created it the same way you would document any artwork viewed in person, like a photo from a personal collection. If the artwork has a title, list it in the “Title of source” slot. Otherwise, provide a description. If you know the date of creation, include it. 

To learn how to cite the artwork in a caption, read our Formatting a Research Paper page.
