Just like you would cite any text source you use in a project or paper, you should give proper attribution for any image you include. Always ask your professor for the style appropriate for the assignment.
Remember: even if images are in the public domain or allowed to be used without permission, most still require attribution of the owning repository or museum to be properly credited. Images for published works (online, print, etc.) require additional permission from the copyright holder and the owning repository.
Basic information you will need to create an image citation includes:
Basic construction for an online image citation (non-museum):
Creator/artist surname, First initial. Middle initial. (Date of creation). Title of the work or image [Description]. Site name. URL
Basic construction for an artwork in a museum or on a museum website:
Creator/artist surname, First initial. Middle initial. (Date of creation). Title of the work or image [Description]. Repository/museum, City, Country. URL
