Nice, but they are a shill

Nice, but they are a shill for the museums. Why not have art searchable worldwide, rather than going from one museum to another? This is an electronic copy of a paper catalog of the different museums- why not be able to see all the Cezanne's world wide, rather than hunting from one library to another?

It would also be helpful to photograph their entire collections, not just the best. Not only would this be a security enhancement, but also scholars would be able to see those less-than-famous paintings not on daily displays.
