Artists’ Collection

Artists’ Collection

Elisabeth Gürtler initiated the Artists’ Collection in 2009: a charitable project that brings together outstanding Austrian art and Austria’s most famous cake. We have commissioned a limited edition Original Sacher-Torte with special packaging designed by a different renowned artist every year since 2009. All the proceeds go to a specially chosen charity – a different one each year.


The Heimo Zobernig Limited Edition
Original Sacher-Torte

Heimo Zobernig is the ninth Austrian artist to design the exclusive Artists’ Collection. It is a unique approach to the packaging of the much-loved cake, turning the traditional wooden box into a work of art. The sales from the 555 limited edition Artists’ Collection boxes combined with an Original Sacher-Torte are donated to CONCORIDA, the Vocational School of Bakery in Bucharest.
