News Reports about Kandinsky in Stedelijk Museum

The Restitutions Committee has taken note of news reports about an alleged lack of objectivity by the members who issued the binding opinion concerning the claim to a Kandinsky painting that belongs to the Stedelijk Museum’s collection. As a result, the Restitutions Committee has established that none of the members has or has had any ties to the Museum that could give rise to doubts about their independence. In so far as there is any kind of relationship (all members are visitors to the Museum), it has nothing to do with a conflict of interest or the appearance thereof.
