Islamic Art Collections: An International Survey

leave a comment »

This text, an index of Islamic art collections in museums, libraries and other institutions, and in private hands, includes a short description of each collection, its main characteristics, documentation, publications and exhibitions. It provides useful administrative data for researchers, students, scholars and amateurs of Islamic art to know about existing collections and what they hold.

‘This is an excellent project and it has been carried out with exemplary care and accuracy. This survey, the first of its kind gives chapter and verse for the holdings of most of the major public collections of Islamic art in the Western world, and some of those in the Islamic world too. The usefulness of these details is self-evident. This is a first attempt at plugging a major information gap in the field of Islamic art.’ – Bulletin of SOAS
