ABOUT HERB AND DOROTHY
He was a postal clerk. She was a librarian. With their modest means, the couple managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history, including works by pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, photographers Cindy Sherman and Lorna Simpson, minimalist Robert Mangold, and post-minimalist Richard Tuttle. Meet Herb and Dorothy Vogel, whose shared passion and discipline have defied stereotypes and redefined what it means to be an art collector. (Not rated | 2008 | 1 hour, 27 minutes)
