Following are various examples of image captions for your reference. Because works of art and the information available to document them vary, captions cannot follow an absolute, rigid model. Include as much information from the bullet-point list above as you can, understanding that certain objects will not have information for every category. Likewise, you may wish to include documentary information about the object if it is relevant to your discussion.
