Exciting discoveries and other news
We are currently working on some very intriguing and significant research in relation to Moissey Kogan‘s work and life, which we hope to be able to share with you in the not-too-distant future. There is no question that persistence pays. Some things also come as lucky breakthroughs. More details, as soon as possible.
Lost and missing works by Kogan
Over the last few months, quite a number of lost and missing works by Kogan have surfaced, including thus far unknown sculptures and prints, as well as work from major old collections. This is hugely gratifying and exciting, and it tells us that much more has survived than previously thought. These works give us a greater understanding of Kogan‘s oeuvre and throw new light on his original intentions. We are very grateful to collectors who contact us, and we would like to reiterate that we treat all such approaches in the strictest confidence. We encourage all owners of works by Kogan in any media to submit information to the Moissey Kogan Catalogue of Sculpture & Prints via our artwork submission forms. Please contact us via our Submit an Artwork page and we will gladly assist you further.
Raising the Project profile
Raising the profile of the Project is certainly paying dividends – collectors, dealers and auction houses are increasingly finding us via social media, as well as via this website. Most recently, we set up a Facebook page for the Catalogue Raisonné project. If you are on Facebook, do follow us (and like the page!). We will be sharing much more frequent information than we can here about Moissey Kogan‘s work and career, as well as related posts about art and artists of the period. And please, of course, share our page with your colleagues and friends! It really helps us get the word out. We are also on Instagram: @moisseykogan and Twitter: @moisseykogan. Again, do follow us, and feel free to comment and share our posts – it would be great to interact with you there!
We are enormously grateful for the very generous donations we have received over the last couple of months, as well as for the extremely kind words and encouragement in relation to our work. Thank you very much. We will keep you posted on further developments.
