“What is Islamic art?” Despite this inherently sacred name, Islamic art includes secular masterpieces. As such, Islamic art is one of the most diverse artistic traditions in the world. Scholars continue to debate its name and classification.  The Crow Collection has many objects from Mughal India (16th-19th c.), the art and architecture of which was shaped both by earlier Islamic cultures and those of pre-Islamic India.
