Founded in 1978, the Tobey C. Moss gallery presents the work of Southern California artists, including Lorser Feitelson (1898-1978)
and Helen Lundeberg (1908-1999). The contents of this collection have been generated as a result of this representation and
the gallery’s subsequent acquisition of material related to the careers of both artists. In addition to representation, Tobey
Moss was involved with the Feitelson Art Foundation and provided appraisals of its collections. This collection contains primary
materials related to these activities, reproductions of materials predating Moss’s involvement, and some primary materials
belonging to Feitelson and Lundeberg, largely in the form of correspondence and photographs and photographic reproductions
Founded in 1978, the Tobey C. Moss Gallery in Los Angeles, was established by Tobey Moss. As part of its emphasis on modern
and particularly Southern California artists, the Moss Gallery presents the work Lorser Feitelson and Helen Lundeberg. Feitelson
and Lundeberg are best known as founders of Post- Surrealism and hard edge painting. Moss first met the artists during the
early 1970s. Shortly after Feitelson’s death in 1978, Moss opened the Gallery and began helping Lundeberg in organizing, classifying,
exhibiting, writing, advertising and publishing gallery announcements and brochures for both artists’ work. In addition to
exhibiting the artists' work, Tobey Moss provided representation for Feitelson and Lundeberg, becoming involved with the Feitelson
Art Foundation. Moss assisted Lundeberg with her eventual estate for the following twenty years. Through these activities
and a close friendship, Moss organically acquired material related to the two artists and their work. The gallery continues
to show work by the two artists.
