In one of the images I made to illustrate my PhD thesis, I included a "Marilyn" by Andy Warhol (image below), and I cannot find the museum/collection where the painting is exhibited. How should I cite it? Should I change the painting?

The original of this piece (the Marilyn Diptych) is held in the Tate Gallery in London.

Your question is rather serendipitous as in two days you can buy your own Warhol original print from the screen at auction. The sale prints were recently exhibited at the Rockefeller Centre.

I would cite the art work in the following manner:

Warhol, Andy (1962), Marilyn Diptych, Silkscreen on Canvas, Tate Gallery, London.
