Herb and Dorothy
87 minutes
2008
Director: Megumi Sasaki
Classification: G

Herb and Dorothy tells the extraordinary story of a postal clerk and a librarian who managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history with very modest means.

In the early 1960s the Vogels quietly began purchasing the works of unknown artists. Devoting all of Herb’s salary to purchase art they liked, the collected by two rules: the piece had to be affordable, and it had to be small enough to fit in their own-bedroom Manhattan apartment. Within these limitations they proved themselves visionaries; most of those they supported and befriended went on to become world-renowned artists. The film feature Chuck Close.
