The Khalili Research Centre Image Database contains just over 30,000 images that have been scanned of the slides used for teaching Islamic Art at the University of Oxford since the 1960s.

The database includes slides from important collections including those of Olga Ford, Sylvia Matheson, and Antony Hutt, alongside slides and photographs taken by academics and researchers affiliated to the KRC, Ashmolean Museum, or Faculty of Oriental Studies.

We continue to work on adding images to the database, and improving the metadata for records already within the archive, and we hope that it will prove a valuable resource to both students of Islamic Art and the public in general.  The database can be accessed via the following link:
