art documentaries

Thank you Harriet for purchasing the ART OF THE STEAL.  I have already viewed it ibut will view it again.  The documentary  is one of many recent works that are well done about the world of art.  Another one that I  highly recommend is HERB and DOROTHY. It is an amazing true story of a New York couple who are average people who have collected a fortune in art before the art itself became fashionnable.  They are a remarkable couple who selflessly donated their entire collection to the Smithsonian and did not seek personal gaim.  It is in stark contrast to the estate battle in The Art of the Steal. I was recently at the Roundabout Theatre and saw a Language Archive.  It was not surprising that Dorothy was there.  My daughter accompanied me and had seen both documentaries as well at my recommendation.  She was very excited when she spotted Dorothy entering the lounge. We approached her and had a wonderful conversation.  She shared that Herb was now 88 and really did not get out.  He feels safer at home but Dorothy has a cell phone and gets around town.  She is a Roundabout subscriber and a modest philanthropist. The two documentaries are a stark contrast in values.  Personally, I am with Herb and Dorothy on this one.  They got it right. They have the respect of so many and have left a wonderful legacy to this country.
