Islamic Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art

LACMA’s definition of Islamic art incorporates both the mainstream idea of an overall sense of connection among works of Islamic art and a recognition of its regional diversity. The full website focuses on not only exposing readers to the fine examples of Islamic art in the museum’s collection, but on using its explanation of those pieces to allow visitors to discover “the rich historical and cultural traditions from which this art emerged.”
