On Art Collecting

Why do people collect art? The sociologist, Sarah Thornton wrote in her book, 'Seven Days in the Art World', for a collector to ask some questions. After first looking at a lot of art ask; Is it intriguing?
Do you find the piece deeply amusing? Do you want to spend time with it and display it in your space? Does it become more compelling the more you think about it and study it? These same questions I ask myself when I think I am done with a painting.
