Vale David Moss (1945 - 2017)

We were very sad to learn of the passing of MasterArt friend and associate, David Moss, aged 71. Following a short illness, David passed away late last month.

David was a cherished member of the MasterArt team. From 2012, he served magnanimously as MasterArt Chief Editor, producing the popular monthly column “MasterArt Storybook”. He will be remembered for his wit, elegance and tireless commitment to the arts.

A highly respected, art fair veteran, David'’s lifelong passion for the arts was best reflected in his writings. Before MasterArt, he spent more than 25 years writing for Antiques Trade Gazette, founding the much-loved “Dealers’ Dossier” column. These writings will continue to serve as a reminder of David’s diligence, skill and flair for life.

Our deepest condolences go out to his wife, Isabel, and his family and friends around the world. He will be sorely missed.

Editor's Note:

David was a very important figure in our industry and represented the last of the old school journalists who knew how to produce the best copy while at the same time managing to have the best of times with friends and colleagues.  He told me some very amusing tales of his exploits.  His knowledge of the arts and the characters within the field was second to none.  We live in more conservative times now and David will be greatly missed by us all.

Funeral Service

David’s funeral service will take place at 12pm on Thursday 16 February at St John’s Wood Church, Lord’s Roundabout, London NW8 7NE. A reception will follow at Danubius Hotel Regents Park.

The family has requested that instead of flowers, donations can be made to St John's Hospice, 60 Grove End Rd, London NW8 9NH.
