For over 40 years, Moke Mokotoff has studied and collected the art of South and Central Asia, including Tibetan art and ritual artifacts, ancient and imperial Chinese textiles, Indian and Nepalese art. He maintained a public gallery in New York from 1980 to 2003, and now deals privately in New York City and Hudson, NY. Moke is a certified appraiser. From 1995 to 2001 he served as the curator of the Shelley and Donald Rubin Foundation's collections and created their Himalayan Art Resources website, which was the largest art "museum" on the web at the time.
