The Metropolitan Museum of Art has many "educator resources" on Korean art, Islamic geometric design, African art, and more (i.e. books filled with beautifully reproduced images of art and artifacts, along with extensive background history). They are available
for download as PDF files.
The Art of the Ancient Near East
is 50+ pages on the history, purposes, and techniques of art in the Near East, followed by 30 works of art, each shown and discussed in detail.
Note: You may have to navigate a few pages to find the download links. (via Cave To Canvas blog.
