The Vogel Collection Story: Postcards from Artists

My dear friends Dorothy and the late Herbert Vogel amassed one of the greatest collections of minimal, conceptual, and post-minimal art in the world, acquiring works by some of the most important contemporary artists of our time.

Here, Maygene Daniels, chief of Gallery Archives, National Gallery of Art, spoke with the Vogels about the 231 artist postcards in their collection (52 of ’em from yours truly)—the personalized cards and other items that artists mailed to them, often with drawings, sketches, as well as personal messages.

Here are two of my Vogel portraits that are in the NGA permanent collection:
