Turabian, Humanities -- Within a Paper -- Image -- From a Book

Notes:
Unless your professor requires it, you do not need to identify the printed work in which you viewed the reproduction.
Titles of paintings and sculptures are italicized; titles of photographs are not italicized, but are enclosed in quotation marks.
In most cases, you will cite an image only in the notes, or you will identify the image in your text.  For example,
Francis Bacon's Jet of Water (1979; MOMA, New York) displays a similar palette . . .  


.
 
Your footnote or endnote will look like this:
 
19Rembrandt, Supper at Emmaus, 1648, Louvre, Paris.
