Artists are collectors by nature and by necessity.
We collect artifacts, vistas, animals, or people that serve as models
or subject matter. From found objects to other art works, artists also
collect for inspiration. The qualities of things teach lessons and nourish
us. So many studios serve as private museums, chapels of ephemera and
oddities to sustain the Muse. Richard Roth
