In case: Verbal refusal of request for a copy of a copy of a Spanish magazine article in the Van Aerssen –Beyeren Dossier
The Hague, 27 February 2013.
I was today at the RKD and requested a photocopy of a photocopy of an article in a Spanish art magazine of 1934, about the Van Aerssen-Beyeren Collection, which was exhibited in 1915 in the Gemeente Museum in The Hague.
I’m doing research after the Van Aerssen family. They owned part of Suriname where I originate and Cornelis van Aerssen van Sommelsdijck (1657-1688) was a Governor of Suriname.
Be so kind to enlarge on this refusal and explain how the privacy of these long dead people can be violated, if I get to study the collection pictures.
This looks also like censure, while in Holland we favor openness and freedom of scientific research.
I have already seen the copy version of the article at the RKD in 2005, but now I understand better what I saw then and want to include this in the study I’m writing at present.
Hope to hear from the RKD soon.
