Herb & Dorothy.



I watched Herb & Dorothy last week. If you haven't seen it - watch it! It's hilarious, fascinating and bananas. This couple from NYC, called, yep, Herb & Dorothy amassed the most important minimalist art collection in the US, maybe even the world. On a postal worker's salary. What?!

I have to confess that I find minimalist art hard to enjoy. It's a bit cerebral for me and I like a lot of bedaaaazzzlement, but listening to Herb & Dorothy talk about it makes it accessible even for a dullard like myself.


I just got this today which reminded me of H&D.
Minimalism
Phaidon, 2000
