Pitfalls of Automatic Citation Managers/Formatters and Art Books
If you are using a citation manager such as zotero or refworks or any other tool that automatically formats citations, you must be very careful when citing art books. Many art books are listed in library catalogs with the artist as author of the book, even if s/he was dead when it was written.
For example, this book was published in 2009, over 30 years after Picasso died
The auto formatted citation will be
Picasso, Pablo, Yve-Alain. Bois, and Palazzo del Vittoriano (Rome, Italy). 2009. Picasso Harlequin, 1917-1937. Milano: Skira.
