both link to the same object.

British Museum, London

http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/search_the_collection_database/search_object_details.aspx?objectid=117631&partid=1. Not yet sure if "&partid=1" is always necessary.

http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/i/image/image-idx?id=S-KELSEY-X-0000.00.0782%5D0000_00_0782 . '0000.00.0782' is an accession number.

Getty Museum, Los Angeles and Malibu

http://www.getty.edu/art/gettyguide/artObjectDetails?artobj=7758 . It's not clear that the 7758 here is the basis for a stable identity.

Search form at http://www.hermitagemuseum.org/fcgi-bin/db2www/browse.mac/category?selLang=English but no short URLs for individual objects.

Hunterian Museum, Glasgow

http://www.huntsearch.gla.ac.uk/cgi-bin/foxweb/huntsearch/DetailedResults.fwx?collection=all&SearchTerm=D.192, where 'D.192' looks like the accession number (though that isn't explicitly stated anywhere on the page).

Louvre, Paris

http://cartelen.louvre.fr/cartelen/visite?srv=car_not_frame&idNotice=2776&langue=en is a link to an individual object. It does not seem to be a permanent link into the collection database of the institution.

The Walters Art Museum, Baltimore

http://art.thewalters.org/viewwoa.aspx?id=33305. The 'id' is not documented on each page. Addresses of this form are unlikely to be permanent URIs for objects in the collection.

http://ecatalogue.art.yale.edu/detail.htm?objectId=95360, where 95360 is the object id, not the accession number.
