I have Verbum's Treasury of Sacred Art, but was wondering if there are other resources offered by Logos that have sacred art?

I tried searching the website (using, e.g., 'art', 'sacred art', 'art media' 'painting'), but most of the results have to do with the arts in general.

Not to the best of my knowledge.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

https://verbum.com/product/37718/images-of-the-saints

https://www.logos.com/product/25699/holbeins-bible-woodcuts

This book also has quite a lot of sacred art in it:

https://www.logos.com/product/149268/in-the-beauty-of-holiness-art-and-the-bible-in-western-culture 

As does this one:

https://www.logos.com/product/193522/bezalels-body-the-death-of-god-and-the-birth-of-art 

There is also some sacred art in these monographs, with textual commentary:

https://www.logos.com/product/40508/creation

https://www.logos.com/product/40509/incarnation

https://www.logos.com/product/40510/redemption

https://www.logos.com/product/40511/resurrection

There is also some sacred art in this series (along with other images) amidst the text:

https://www.logos.com/product/3635/lion-histories-series

I'm always on the lookout for more to tag for my "GoodArt" collection in Logos. If you come across any others, let me know.

You might also want to consider voting for these resource suggestions that would contain tons of great sacred art. Logos needs much more!

The New Testament Through 100 Masterpieces of Art

"A Guide to Imagery" series from J. Paul Getty Museum

The Illustrated Jesus Through the Centuries

Thanks, Rosie! That's great. I'll definitely give those resource suggestions my vote.

If you are willing to look outside of Logos and know the name of the artist or the work then The Google Art Project is pretty impressive.

I usually start here:  https://diglib.library.vanderbilt.edu/act-search.pl.  Makes attribution simple and usually gives me something I can work with.

Yes, though I prefer having stuff in the one place, I'm happy too look elsewhere too. Thanks!

Rosie Perera:
Another three you can vote for that weren't my suggestions, but are also worthy sources of sacred art:

Done.
