How do I cite an art catalog?

Note: This post relates to content in the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook. For up-to-date guidance, see the ninth edition of the MLA Handbook.

Cite an art catalog the way you would cite a book:

Bambach, Carmen C. Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer. Metropolitian Museum of Art, 2017.

If the catalog does not have an author or editor, begin the entry with the title:

American Encounters: The Simple Pleasures of Still Life. High Museum of Art, 2014.
