Episode Summary

Herb and Dorothy

Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal narrates this fascinating biographical documentary about Herb and Dorothy Vogel, who collected 4,000 works of Minimalist and Conceptual art on a modest postal workers salary. The couple studied art in their youth but beginning in the early 1960s channeled their appreciation of art into collecting, in spite of their small one bedroom apartment in New York City.
