http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/search/?accession_number=16.580.233&type=object

and

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.

Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge

Getty Museum, Los Angeles and Malibu

Is there a collection database online?

Hermitage, Saint Petersburg

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.

Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

There is a database search form at http://www.metmuseum.org/search/woa_advanced_search.asp but it does not seem to support individually addressable catalog entries via a URL.

Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

http://mfa.org/collections/search_art.asp?coll_accession=63.2644, where 63.2644 is the accession number.

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.

Yale Art Gallery, New Haven

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