Death of An Art Collector…

Herb Vogel, a postal clerk-turned-art collector, has died at the age of 89. If you haven’t seen the fascinating 2009 doc, Herb and Dorothy, be sure to check it out and see how this man, who never made more than $23,000 a year, and his wife, amassed one of the greatest collections of modern art that the world has ever seen — and later donated it to Washington D.C.’s National Gallery of Art, as well as galleries all in 50 states. A true American original!
