Slideshows by Region

The subject of Islamic art and architecture is extensive, covering, as it does, a huge geographical area and fifteen centuries of development. The images presented in these Slideshows are all selected from the Main Archive (50 from each region plus a General Survey). They are intended as an Introduction, both to this marvellous artistic tradition, to the particular forms of its expression in the different regions that are represented - and of course to the Archive itself.

When watching a slideshow, please be patient as each one takes a takes a little time to initially load.
