If I want to italicize a word in a quote which is not originally italicized, how do I note that I have done this?

i.e., "the establishment of a conventional Surrealist pattern." I want to italicize "conventional" to emphasize my point, but it isn't originally italicized in the Manifesto of Surrealism. How do I note, within my citation of this quote, that I have added my own italics?

What I have seen is the word put into italics, and then after the quotes written in parens: (italics added) or something to that effect.

yep, in your citation, write name, page, etc. and then after the period "[emphasis added]"
