Collection and 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.
