Our beloved city houses one of the largest art-historical documentation centers in the world! The RKD – Netherlands Institute for Art History, located in the KB complex, manages unique archives, documentation- and photo-items and the largest art-historical library on Western art. This varies from the late Middle Ages to the present with a focus on Dutch art in an international context.
Besides paintings, drawings and sculptures, the collections also include monumental art, modern media and design. They support museums, universities, auction houses and other institutions, as well as individual researchers or collectors by making their collections, knowledge and publications available.
