This evolving page gathers online resources on Islamic arts.

Because most of national libraries and museums around the world have Islamic art collections of various size, it has been decided not to list museums and libraries online databases.

Get in touch if you have more specific questions about collections of Islamic arts, or if you have any suggestion.
