You don't have to be a Rockefeller to collect art
HERB & DOROTHY tells the extraordinary story of Herbert Vogel, a postal worker, and Dorothy Vogel, a librarian, who managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history with very modest means. In the early 1960s, when very little attention was paid to Minimalist and Conceptual Art, Herb and Dorothy Vogel quietly began purchasing the works of unknown artists. Living only on Dorothy's modest income, the Vogels devoted all of Herb's salary to purchasing art.
The criteria by which they chose the art were simple: the piece had to be affordable, and it had to be small enough to fit into their one-bedroom Manhattan apartment. Within these limitations, they proved themselves curatorial visionaries; supporting and befriending artists who went on to become world-renowned, such as Sol LeWitt, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Richard Tuttl and Chuck Close.
