A nicely done obituary of Herbert Vogel that appears on the front page of Monday’s Washington Post. Vogel was a retired postal worker, who, along with his wife, acquired a very significant collection of modern art.
Post staff writer Matt Schudel writes: “Herb and Dorothy Vogel had three requirements in purchasing art: It had to be inexpensive; it had to be small enough to be carried on the subway or in a taxi; and it had to fit inside their one-bedroom apartment.”
Mr. Vogel left much of the collection to the National Gallery of Art. You can read the article at this link.
