    This website contains information that has been compiled and published by the former Origins Unknown Agency. As of 1 September 2018, the Expert Centre Restitution of the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies keeps this information accessible through this website for the time being. The NIOD cannot guarantee the completeness or accuracy of the information presented on this site. No rights can be derived from the information.

    On this website, you may find provenance information related to individual artworks in the Netherlands Art Property Collection (Dutch: Nederlands Kunstbezit/NK-collectie).

    This collection consists of artworks with a past related to the Second World War. The nature of that past varies from former looted Jewish property to voluntarily sold trade stock. Artworks  from this collection are loaned to Dutch museums, embassies and other government buildings. The custodian of the collection is the Cultural Heritage Agency.

    After the Second World War, anybody who had lost works to the enemy, or had information on artworks that got into enemy hands, was obligated to inform the Netherlands Art Property Foundation (Dutch: Stichting Nederlands Kunstbezit or SNK) by way of a declaration form. Nowadays, these declaration forms are still being kept in the archive of the Netherlands Art Property Foundation.

    The database that was compiled by the former Origins Unknown Agency and this website have been transferred to the NIOD as of 1 September 2018.
