My gallery: Tobey C. Moss Gallery was opened in 1978 and evolved into a ‘window on the world’ of the 1930s – 2000s featuring the art and artists of southern California.
Many of those artists were introduced…reintroduced…and developed within the offerings of the TCM Gallery – through our website, our announcements, our brochures, our catalogues and our exhibitions.
But sometimes we simply presented a ‘ringer’…that is, an artist whose idiosyncratic view of art was so deliciously funny that we couldn’t not tickle YOUR sense of humor along with our own.
I’d love to learn about YOUR serendipitous discoveries that brought laughs, chuckles, snickers and pleasure! 
All good wishes to Everyone
          – to be well, be safe and to be future-oriented to virus-free holidays.
               Tobey – and Betty – and Susan – and Mario….etc., etc., etc.

WE DO HAVE FUN ‘ROUND HERE!

Mike Romanoff professed to be a member of the deposed Romanov family when he opened his eponymous ‘tony’ restaurant in Beverly Hills, California. Hollywood ‘royalty’ dined there with him and his constant companion ‘Confucious’.
These paintings may have been displayed there – or they may simply be ZITO’s view of Romanoff, Confucious and Romanoff’s patrons! 
But this is ‘pure Hollywood!’
