“Why collect art? In a cynical, inflationary era when the word “collectables” has entered the vocabulary, the question may be moot, Sociologists and psychologists agree that man is naturally acquisitive; that possessions generate pride, prominence and pleasure. Art cannot be “owned” by a collector since it is proof of someone else’s creativity, something unique and often autobiographical, forever belonging to its creator. The de Kooning on the wall opposite me will forever be his albeit it is temporarily in my custody. How did I become its custodian?” -Jane B. Meyerhoff
