The basic format is as follows:

Author, A. (date). Title of document [Format description]. Retrieved from http://URL

For example, if you wanted to use this image:

 

You would cite it as follows:

UT Arlington Library. (2006). LibraryFountain-1 [Photograph]. Retrieved from http://www.flickr.com/photos/utarlingtonlibrary/6807530044/in/photostream/

Here is an APA Style Blog entry on citing something you found on a website:

And specifically, here is an APA Style Blog entry how to cite artwork:

If you are using a website image that is not considered fine art, use either “[Photograph]” or “[Image]” or another descriptive term after the title of the image. If the image has no official title, you can make up a description and enclose it in square brackets to use in place of the title.
