In February of this year, we announced the first fruits of our collaboration with Sheila Blair, Jonathan Bloom and Walter Denny, through which we will make available up to 25,000 images from the personal image archives of these three distinguished Islamicists. We are now pleased to announce that an additional 3,600 images have recently been released into the ARTstor Digital Library, bringing the total number of images from this collection now available to ARTstor users to more than 9,000. This latest release includes images of the Islamic architecture and decoration of Turkey, Morocco, Spain, Iran and other regions of the Islamic world.

To browse these new images, please click on “Image Gallery” on the ARTstor “welcome page” and then select “Islamic Art and Architecture Collection (Sheila Blair, Jonathan Bloom, Walter Denny).” Or search for images from these scholars’ archives by subject or by using their names as keywords (e.g. “Walter Denny”).
