Facilitating thoughtful,
effective giving to Europe and Africa.




Giving artworks and collections to museums abroad


KBFUS ART receives artworks and collections from U.S. donors and places them in museums all across Europe and Africa. Working with KBFUS, donors gain an experienced partner to navigate the cultural, legal and tax complexities involved in donating art overseas.

We can work with an institution that you have a close affinity with or identify an appropriate location in the country of your choice. Operating under the guidance of our Art Advisory Committee, KBFUS ART will make sure that your artwork is displayed or made available for research in the best possible environment and according to your wishes and instructions.

KBFUS ART – Helping you create a legacy at an art institution overseas
KBFUS INSIGHT: A unique library finds a new home in the center of medieval France


“Professor Constable’s donation of his library of medieval books is an immense gift that serves the City of Cluny and the research community. It’s almost a match made in heaven.”

Anna Swinbourne, independent art historian, former painting and sculpture curator at MoMA – NY


“The Rijksmuseum received an 18th century portrait from the collection of Andreas van Braam Houckgeest, a Dutch-American merchant and ambassador to the Chinese emperor. We are grateful to KBFUS for making this gift possible.”

Erik van Ginkel, Director of Finance & Operations at the Rijksmuseum (Netherlands)


“Art should be shared with others. As a lifelong collector, I think of myself as a ‘temporary owner’. I was delighted to donate five paintings to KBFUS. They can now be admired at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts and at Beaux-Arts Mons in Belgium.”

Stéphane Janssen, art collector (Arizona, USA and Brussels, Belgium)
