    • Cite it as Jackson Pollock – then the title will be “Interview with William Wright,” with the rest of the citation for the Theories & Documents book. In parenthetical citations, just use Pollock’s name & the page number.

  1. I’m still confused on in-text citations, is this all i’d need: ”Dewfdiwejh ncdk” (Kleiner 326). If I was citing a quote from your Art Through The Ages book?
