Herb and Dorothy Vogel

hmpageOver the last few days I watched the movie Herb and Dorothy on Netflix. The movie, by Megumi Sasaki, is an uncomplicated sharing of an extraordinary true story-line: a library worker and a postal worker who over 40 years amassed one the of the most important collections of modern, abstract, and minimalist art in the United States. (Much of the Vogel collection is now with the National Gallery of Art.)

You wouldn’t exactly call the movie ‘illuminating’, but it is charming (and astounding), especially if you’re an art-lover. Here is the trailer:
