The Tobey C. Moss Gallery in Los Angeles, founded in 1978, was established by Tobey Moss. In parallel with a focus on Southern
Californian art and artists, the Moss gallery presents the work Lorser Feitelson (1898-1978) and Helen Lundeberg (1908-1999).
Feitelson and Lundeberg are best known as founders of Hard Edge painting, a technique of geometcial abstraction, and as pioneers
of the Post-Surrealist movement. In addition to exhibiting the artists' work, Tobey Moss provided representation for Feitelson
and Lundeberg. 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. 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.
