State Collection Restitution Application Step-by-Step Plan
One of the Restitutions Committee’s tasks is to give the Minister of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) advice about decisions concerning restitution claims relating to artworks in the Dutch National Art Collection. The Netherlands Art Property Collection (NK collection) is a specific part of the Dutch National Art Collection. It consists of approximately 3,800 artworks with a ‘war record’. The Netherlands Cultural Heritage Agency (RCE) currently manages the collection. Many of the artworks are on loan to Dutch museums or government buildings. The Restitutions Committee only advises in the case of artworks from the Dutch National Art Collection at the request of the Minister of Education, Culture and Science (OCW). A restitution application can be submitted to the RCE, which handles applications on behalf of the Minister of OCW.
