Islamic Art in Museums

Islamic art objects have long been collected in many countries in and outside the Islamic world, as evidenced not least by the earliest foundations of special museums of Islamic art in Cairo (1904) as well as in Berlin (1905) and by the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar, which opened in 2008. In addition, there is an almost unmanageable number of museums and collections, the focus of which is not Islamic art, but have larger or smaller collections of Islamic art, which are often inadequately known.
