About Citations for Images

Image Citation using Chicago:

"According to the Chicago Many of Style (17th ed.) information about the image, whether it is a photograph, painting, or other work of art, can be presented in the text and not in a note or bibliography.  However, if a citation is required, citing an image in Chicago style requires you to include much of the same information you would include in citing a print resource like author(s)/editor(s), title of image, and publication date. Chicago style dictates a different citation format depending on whether the image is from an electronic resource or published photograph."

Bibliography:

Author Surname, First Name or Initial. Image Title. Year. Medium. size. Museum or place image is, Location, URL.
