RKD Netherland Institute for art History
Conducting art historical research starts with 1 hour of research and costs € 132 (excluding VAT). If further research is needed, the follow-up rate is € 66 (excluding VAT) per half hour. The results of the research are sent in the form of a digital report. The statements issued by the RKD on an art work are the result of art historical research by one or more staff members and cannot be regarded as expertise. The RKD does not carry out art appraisals, nor do we make statements about the value of art works. If you need an art appraisal, please contact an auction house, art dealer or art appraiser.
