The DIA has upgraded their website with zoomable scans of hundreds of the works in their collections. The practical viewing area is less than 750 x 500 pixels, which is not enough in my opinion, but at least it's larger than what most museums with similar features offer.

I should note that the DIA has done a commendable job overall, and the works appear to be extremely well photographed and scanned.
