How do I cite a political cartoon?

As with any image, how you cite a political cartoon depends on where you found it. Say, for example, you found it republished on a museum Web site. Using the MLA format template, include the artist’s name, the title of the work (or a description of the work if no title is given), the name of the publisher, and the work’s publication date. Then provide the name of the Web site and its publication details in a second container, as shown in the example below:

Gillray, James. The Plumb-Pudding in Danger; or, State Epicures Taking un Petit Souper. Hannah Humphrey, 26 Feb. 1805. The Met, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2000-19, www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/367748.
