Herb and Dorothy

' Herb and 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. "Sasaki's documentary really shines when she gives centre stage to the greateful artists whom they helped nurture" - Time Out
