Francesca von Habsburg Collect Art Doing Commissions

Why Francesca von Habsburg Collect Art: To experience the creation of art.

The daughter of collector and steel magnate Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza (and wife of Austrian archduke Karl Habsburg), Ms. von Habsburg, says she is interested in commissioning art.
She says the shift is a way of "moving beyond just being happy and satisfied with a feeling of acquisition, to being involved in the creative process."
"Doing commissions, I've spent infinitely less money than dripping around art fairs."
Commission to educate yourself, as well as help artists. [from wsj]
