The value of an object is subjective, emotionally or monetarily. But when it becomes art, it enters into another realm. What is a particular piece worth? For the design art market, Murray Moss and his associates were the authorities on this matter, promoting and elevating design objects to art in its Soho gallery. After the collapse of the economy, Moss suffered a significant blow to his business, shuttering its long standing boutiques across the country. Moss is now in transition, redirecting his focus to consulting. With the gallery and shop behind him, it’s time for him to let go of a few things. On October 16th, it will be up to the buyers to determine the worth of Moss’s personal collection and inventory in an auction handled by Phillips de Pury. The auction consists of one of a kind furniture pieces, sculptures, paintings and rare editions. Visit Phillips de Pury’s site to view all the lots.
