Entrepreneur and philanthropist Frederick R. Weisman was a prominent West Coast collector of twentieth-century art. Renowned for his business success, good humor, and charitable spirit, it was his art collection that established him as an international figure. Comprised of over one thousand paintings, sculptures, mixed-media and video works, the collection spans numerous pre- and postwar art movements and includes work of both celebrated and emerging artists. With a keenly intuitive eye, Mr. Weisman selected important, vibrant, and dynamic works of art to comprise his very personal and remarkable collection.
