Q. Citing Artwork
Hi! I have a project working with an art piece from the Philadelphia Art Museum and I am having trouble citing the art piece. Would I be able to get someone to look over it and get feedback? Here is the link to the piece: https://philamuseum.org/collection/object/104447
Cassett, M.S. (1881). Woman and a Girl Driving [Oil on canvas]. Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA, United States. Philamuseum (n.d.). Retrieved from https://philamuseum.org/collection/object/104447
Do you have access to the APA manual? If so, I would follow the guidance on p.346 section 10.14 Visual Works
The example they provide looks like this:
Wood, G. (1930). American gothic [Painting]. Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL, United States. https://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/artwork/6565
I have a few edits:
1. Only the first letter of the first word of the title should be capitalized. Sentence case as it's called, is the rule for all titles in APA.
2. I think it's fine to say that the medium is [painting] vs the more specific [Oil on canvas]
3. After the location (United States), you only need to put the URL. You don't need to add Philamuseum (n.d)
4. Also omit the words "Retrieved from" - APA 7 only requires you to use "retrieved from" when you include a retrieval date. This reference does not need a retrieval date because it is a stable URL.
Hope that helps!
