Unfortunately Google's Structured Data Testing Tool doesn't allow SVG as value for images in the
Strangely enough Google does accept SVG as logo for an organization.

Blockquote https://dev.w3.org/SVG/tools/svgweb/samples/svg-files/clippath.svg (The value provided for image must be a valid URL.)
<section itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Article"> <img src="https://dev.w3.org/SVG/tools/svgweb/samples/svg-files/clippath.svg" alt="Logo" itemprop="image"/> <div class="title-wrapper"> <h1 class="title" itemprop="name headline"> <strong>Title</strong> <small>Review 2019</small> </h1> <span class="last-modified" itemprop="dateModified" content="2019-01-02"> <strong>Laatst bijgewerkt:</strong> 2 januari 2019</span> </section>

Note2: I added an example SVG for privacy purposes
Note3: I know author, datepublished and publisher are missing in this example, but that's not the point here.
