Now working on adding the Forgotten Maverick (FM) data - mainly the images, but also checking the details of size, current ownership etc. It seems that the dimensions base data (LH) is inconsistent on quoting H/W or W/H - I'll have to check that and also the entries on the summary pages.
I have bought a copy of the Gimpel catalogue (G&H) - there seems to have been only one on sale worldwide allowing the rather excessive price of SFr 75 + 21.36 postage. It is a surprisingly small book, but richly illustrated. It is reproduced at about half-size in FM, but I felt I had to have an original.
I have not plucked up courage to contact Lucy Howarth yet, I guess in case she disapproves of the use of her data and I have to dismantle the site. I'll carry on integrating the FM data then G&H and the Stedelijk Museum catalogue (SM) and write to her then.
The detail pages are in progress - 11 done so far.
The paintings detail pages complete with the details from Lucy Howarth's thesis (LH), the sculptures on 8Oct and the works on paper around 13th Oct.
The three pages listing all the works in the Catalogue Raisonné (CR) are complete - paintings, sculptures and sketches. An auctions page has also been started.
Next, the plan is to integrate the Florette Dijkstra (FD) numbers, create a page listing the exhibitions and decide on the layout for the detail pages. Then build the detail pages.
The information then captured will be, more or less, all of the CR cross-referenced to FD. The next stage will be to integrate subsequent sources starting with Forgotten Maverick and then whatever else can be found.
When it is looking good, I will contact Lucy Howarth and see how she feels about me recycling all her good work (I mentioned in an email early in 2017 that I intended to start work on a web site).
I'll keep a log of progress here. I decided to build a site detailing Moss's work in March 2017 and built a skeleton web site in June. It has taken until September to make a start on assembling the detail.
I will begin with volume 2 of Dr. Lucy Howarth's PhD Thesis which is a Catalogue Raisonné. List the works and then build individual detail pages.
