Harry may be ebullient but just wait until you get a hold of "Herb and Dorothy." This incredible documentary, yes it's on Netflicks, profiles the Vogels. Herb, a postal worker, and Dorothy, a librarian, amassed one of the largest collections of modern art which they donated to the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. Now in their eighties, finally having room for a new couch in their one bedroom, rent controlled apartment in Manhattan they did what any self-respecting art lover would do. They bought more art.
