To cite an image or photograph that is a reproduction of a work of art your citation would begin with the name of the creator of the work when available:

Book:

Cooday, Jesse. "Self-Portrait." 1984. Eds. Encyclopedia of Native American Artists. Deborah Everett
     and Elaine Zorn. Greenwood P, 2008. Plate 3.

A page number can be given instead of a plate number.  The first date is the date of the image, the last is the publication date.

 

Online Periodical

McNicoll, Helen. "The Open Door." 1913. "Impressions of Difference: The Painted Canvases of
     Helen McNicoll." Art History, vol. 27, no.3, 2004, p. 212.
