I want to submit an application

When submitting a restitution application it has to be clear who the current owner of the claimed artwork is. This is not always straightforward. If a painting is hanging in a museum, for example, that does not always mean the museum owns it. It may be on loan from the central government, a private individual or the local authority. The museum where the artwork is located is the best source of information about this issue. If in doubt contact the RCE.

Once it is clear who owns the artwork, you will know whether it concerns the procedure for the Dutch National Art Collection or for the Other Collections. You can read how a procedure works on page Procedure. Or go directly to a specific procedure via the button below.
