Kunstkoop Mondriaanfonds
100% art • 0% interest

The KunstKoop of the Mondriaan Fund offers Dutch individuals the possibility to pay for the purchase of an artwork in monthly installments, without any interest. The aim of this service is to encourage private individuals to buy art and in this way to stimulate the Dutch art market in general. About 120 art galleries in the Netherlands cooperate with the KunstKoop, and therefore the use is widespread.

The KunstKoop can be used for artworks by living artists, produced after 1945 and with a minimum price of € 750.
The maximum loan is € 7.500. If an art work costs more, the remaining amount should be covered by the buyer.
On purchase, the buyer pays a minimum of 10% of the total price directly to the gallery, with a maximum of € 450. Art works above € 7.950 require a higher first installment.
The remaining amount can be payed via monthly installments. The minimum monthly installment is € 22.50.
The minimum duration of the loan is one year, the maximum is two years. (On 1 January 2020 the maximum duration of the loan with ABN AMRO changed from three years to two years).
The ABN AMRO bank decides whether the loan is approved. Validation and registration of the loan at the Bureau Kredietregistratie (BKR) in Tiel are part of the procedure.
Limited editions, for example silk-screen prints and lithographs, should comply with the requirements as known to the gallery owner.
The KunstKoop can be used by individuals aged 18-77 (the loan must be finished before the age of 79).

New collaboration partner
The Mondriaan Fund has found a new collaboration partner for the KunstKoop: Santander Consumer Finance Benelux. The current form of the KunstKoop scheme with cooperation partner ABN AMRO ends on 1 April 2020.

Applications for loans could be submitted with ABN AMRO until 29 February at the latest. Expected is that applications can be filed with Santander Consumer Finance Benelux from mid April on. Between 1 March and mid April, no applications for KunstKoop loans can be submitted.
