DESIGN AND DECORATION: THE ALAN MOSS COLLECTION. Wright, New York, 2015. Distributed by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 196 pp. 27 x 20 cm. ISBN 9780990495567 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Comprised of nearly 300 lots of furniture and objects, this sumptuous auction catalog attests to dealer Alan Moss's deep appreciation for quality, workmanship, material, finish and decoration. Outstanding examples of early modernism are presented in lavish photographs and unexpected groupings alongside midcentury and postwar designs, including works by Gio Ponti, Donald Deskey, Georges Jouve, Karl Springer and Jacques Adnet, among others. A fixture of New York City for over 40 years, Moss has been among the city's important dealers since the beginning of the 20th century market. Focusing on quality, he has an eye for the rare high points of 20th century design and objects representing over a century of decorative evolution. Whether the style of Paul Poiret, the substance of Donald Deskey or the surrealism of Piero Fornasetti, Moss's inclusive and eclectic taste has long influenced, and in many cases defined, the market for 20th century decorative art and design.
