We tend to care more about artists' own creations and seem pay little attention to the pieces collected by artists. The exhibition in London's National Gallery this year has selected 60 paintings acquired by art masters including Lucian Freud and Van Dyck, and put these collections along with the artists' works to showcase the connection between artists' aesthetic appreciation and their own creations.
