Van der Steenhoven advocaten

Van der Steenhoven advocaten is a Dutch law firm, which is very much invested in copyright law and Volgrecht (Resale right). Last year they organised a Client Class to inform and discuss Resale right (Volgrecht). At the time of the Client Class there was a lawsuit pending between Pictoright, which manages the copyrights and resale rights for artists, and an art dealer who refused to give Pictoright information on what works he sold.


As of today it is possible to search on our website for art works from a specific collection:
One can now easily search for Constant's works in museums by just putting the name of the museum/collection in the search box and click search! Keep in mind that most private collectors want to remain anonymous and are therefore indicates as private collection.
