Dictionary of Dutchness


The Instituut Collectie Nederland is the organisation responsible for managing the state’s art collection which consists of over 100,000 items. Much of the artwork comes from legacies but the collection also includes pieces recovered from the Nazis and art created under artist subsidy schemes. The ICN’s main tasks include advising on the preservation and management of collections, carrying out research and training restorers. The ICN is part of the culture and education ministry.
