Dutch Museum to Give Malevich Paintings to His Heirs

Heirs of the illustrious Russian abstractionist Kazimir Malevich and Amsterdam Municipality have come to an agreement about ownership of the painters works, which found themselves in Stedelijk Museum of the Netherlandian capital in the late 1950s.
      Thus litigation between the museum and heirs of Malevich has been resolved. From 2001 the heirs contested the rights of the museum for ownership of the canvasses, since they were purchased from a person who was not their legitimate owner.
      According to the agreement, Amsterdam Municipality is going to return five Malevich paintings (among them Desk and Room (1913) and Suprematist Composition (1916)) to his heirs.
      Other paintings by Malevich, as well as his seven gouaches, fifteen drawings and eighteen sketches kept in the Stedelijk Museum will remain in Amsterdam. The burgomaster Job Cohen pointed out that the agreement reached balances the interests of both the parties.
