The RKD Netherlands Institute for Art History is one of the most important documentation and research institutes in the world. The RKD is a knowledge center, and closely cooperates with museums, heritage organizations, universities and private organisations.

Collection and public function

Aside from its role in research, the RKD also maintains a collection and serves a public function. The RKD manages unique archives, documentary and photographic material, as well as the largest library on Western art history ranging from the late Middle Ages to the present, focused on Dutch art in international context. The collections cover not only painting, drawing and sculpture, but also monumental art, modern media and design. The collections are accessible both online and in the reading room.
