Where does the Album Art come from?

When I play music from either a data CD (ie MP3s) or a USB drive (again, MP3s), often I get album art. I know for an absolute fact that there is no artwork coming from the source (CD or USB). However, they are tagged properly, for the most part.

So is it looking to the cloud to get the artwork? Thru what connection does it do this? What database does it call? What TAG field is it looking at? The few that don't display correctly, if I know what cloud database, and which field, I can correct them.
