<P>From the exhibition <EM>Many Things Placed Here and There: The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection at the Yale University Art Gallery</EM>:</P>
<P>Edward Renouf met the Vogels through his daughter, Edda. He published a number of manifestos on his work, stating that his drawings use graphite or wax to "ap&shy;proximate unbroken continuity," visible in the elabo&shy;rate, intertwining, allover pattern of this drawing. Despite his own careful analysis, Renouf suggested that the viewer "stop thinking about art" and instead "look at it and live it!"---an ideology that resonates with the Vogels' approach to collecting.&nbsp; <BR></P>
