Ed Moses, prolific artist who helped transform LA scene, dies

LOS ANGELES — Prolific abstract expressionist Ed Moses, one of the founding members of a collective known as the Cool School and helped transform Los Angeles from a cultural backwater to a major force in the world of modern art, has died. He was 91. Moses died Wednesday at his home in Los Angeles’ Venice Beach section with his family by his side, his son Andy said Thursday. The elder Moses, who produced hundreds of paintings and drawings and whose work was the subject of countless exhibitions during a career spanning more than 60 years, continued to work almost daily until about two weeks ago when his health began to fail.
