Here’s a heartwarming art story from The Economist, of all places. In 1993, two students at Frankfurt’s art school (Städelschule) each gave the caretaker a painting for his 50th birthday. Somehow, it became a tradition for students to give the caretaker and his wife a painting at graduation. By now, the couple have a superb art collection — much of it valuable, none of it for sale, with none of the acquistions based on anything but personal affection.
