 Vienna, May 2019. Indulgence for a good cause is the motto of the unique Sacher Artists’ Collection. Until now, every year, a different well-known Austrian artist transformed the wooden box into a unique piece of art. However, the 11th special edition of the Original Sacher-Torte is without doubt a premiere.  For the first time, the motif does not come from a contemporary artist, but from one of the most important figures of the Austrian Biedermeier period: Friedrich von Amerling. 
The painting is part of the Liechtenstein Princely Collections. The Prince of Liechtenstein’s collections are some of the largest and most significant private collections in the world.

The entire proceeds from the sale of the limited special edition of just 555 boxes will benefit the Herzkinder Österreich (Austria’s Heartkids) association, an Austria-wide point of contact for all non-medical concerns and issues for children, adolescents and adults with heart conditions and congenital heart diseases, and their families. Here, the families of children with heart conditions will find not just support, advice and assistance, but also organized activities such as meetings with other affected children, games afternoons and hikes. 
Every year, Herzkinder Österreich organizes three rehabilitative aftercare weeks for families whose children have undergone open-heart surgery. The proceeds of the Artists’ Collection 2019 will cover the entire costs of a week-long summer break for 19 families from all over Austria and make a week full of creative workshops and excursions, as well as discussion groups for parents, Heartkids and their siblings, possible.
