Art collectors Herb Vogel and Dorothy Vogel collected for decades minimalist and conceptual art directly from artists on their meager postal clerk and a librarian salaries. Just ordinary people with a passionate obsession, the Vogels became extraordinary in the world of art, and when they decided to donate it all to The National Gallery, well, now they’re special to all of us.
More than 4,000 pieces emerged from their tiny flat. When properly packaged it filled five tractor-trailers. Available on DVD or stream it: Herb and Dorothy. See it now. This is a fascinating film for art collectors, dealers, curators, appraisers, and psychiatrists. [***** 5-stars]
