Sample Research Paper Mla Art

Chicago Manual of Style

Researchers in the field of Art & Architectural History often use The Chicago Manual of Style (Humanities).

MLA: Modern Language Association Style  

The MLA format is parenthetical; you give your source in parentheses immediately following the sentence or thought it affected. At the end of your paper, you will then include a "Works Cited" or Bibliography referencing each source used. What goes into a Works Cited page? 1. Only those sources that are referenced in in your paper; 2. Organize your list by alphabetizing sources according to the authors' last names. If no author name is given, by the first main word in the title.

Parenthetical Examples: 

...Much like Turner in his painting, John Soane attached great importance to poetry which he saw as a sister art to architecture. (Watkin 431)

drop the last name if you continue to cite the same work in succession - just use the page number:
...And also like Turner, Soane's poetic taste was more Augustan and less Romantic. (431)
