We already have Boijmans artist ID (P3888) for artists in this collection. We currently have about 8000 artworks in the Boijmans collection and the linking is a bit of a mess. We have a combination of:

So six (!) different ways of linking to the same object. On Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Collection/Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen you can see we ended up mixing the different formats and have redundant links. Let's make an external identifier so we can consolidate this. Multichill (talk) 10:27, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
