How Do You Define a Collector?

"Someone once asked me, how do you define a collector? I've always said the way you define one is a collector is someone who keeps on buying art when the walls are full. Until then, you're doing interior decorating - on a high level, but you're doing decorating. When you keep on buying, that's when you're a collector."

 André Emmerich was a gallerist in New York who specialized in Color Field painters.
