omg Jen, I'm stunned. Three days ago I was just telling my roommate from France, here for 3 months to do research, about the Vogels and the documentary.

We were in the RISD museum and walked into the gallery devoted to the 50 pieces to Rhode Island from the Vogel's collection. Although they collected sculpture and paintings as well, I love that they were partial to the drawings, especially the sketches before larger projects. It's like collecting a little of the brain and heart of the artist.

"Herb and Dorothy" is one of my favorite documentaries that I've watched a few times now. It's on Netflix livestream.

I agree Gurldoggie. John is a local treasure. Pretty special.

This is incredibly horrific and I'm absolutely enraged. Yes, it is state sanctioned rape.

@11: Once I move to Providence, I look forward to again spending more time studying this Sargent painting. For a realistic work, I find it to be quite abstract...the large black square of the shadow and that luscious red stripe of the curtain. To this day...17 years later, I'll never forget my experience of walking into that room in the MFA that housed the painting, along with a few others of his. Sargent is meticulous with faces and then goes to town in a luscious painterly fashion while painting fabric. And his handling of whites is simply brilliant. So much color, life and light in his whites.

@7, it's essentially been the only articulate thing I can do today. I just stepped out of a meeting where I really couldn't form the words I desired. And thank you.
