Since AD is the current standard of our dating system, the need to quote AD in an MLA citation is generally unnecessary, unless the source specifically states it. The proper way to add A.D. or B.C. to a date is to simply add it after the indicated year in a citation:

Red cow, Lascoux Cave Painting, 20,000 B.C. Lascoux France.
