herb and dorothy

i want to check this out:

HERB & DOROTHY Trailer from Herb & Dorothy on Vimeo.

Herb and Dorothy is a documentary about Herb and Dorothy Vogel, who built one of the most significant contemporary art collections ever. Herb's salary, as a postal worker, went towards their art purchases and they used Dorothy's salary, as a librarian, to live.

Their criteria for purchasing art were: they had to be able to afford it and it had to fit in their small Manhatten apartment.

Their collection grew to over 4,000 pieces and it got so big, they finally had to start storing it under their bed! In 1992, they donated their collection to the National Gallery.
