Ivan Estrada Properties Team Takes A Field Trip

January 23, 2020

Ivan Estrada Properties Team is taking a field trip to the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation!

The Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation is a non-profit arts foundation located on North Carolwood Drive in the Holmby Hills district of Los Angeles, California. Modern and contemporary artwork in the Frederick R. Weisman collection are displayed in a “living with art—house museum” context, with guided public tours by appointment with the foundation.

 

Weisman and his wife Marcia Simon, sister of art collector Norton Simon, began collecting art in the late 1940s, starting with the works of American and European postwar artists including Willem de Kooning, Alberto Giacometti, and Mark Rothko. From 1960 to 1964, Marcia Weisman hosted monthly proselytizing classes for novice collectors, taught by Irving Blum and Walter Hopps, whose Ferus Gallery in West Hollywood was the first to show Frank Stella, Ellsworth Kelly, and Roy Lichtenstein in Los Angeles. By the mid-1960s, their collection had become well known. David Hockney portrayed them in a 1968 double portrait called American Collectors (Fred and Marcia Weisman), now in the Art Institute of Chicago, that has become one of his most famous works. The Weismans were divorced in 1979 and split the collection. While Marcia Simon Weisman donated some of her half to the newly formed Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles,  Frederick Weisman established the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation in 1982.

Tours at the estate are free and can be scheduled through the foundation! We encourage you to tour this hidden local gem!
