Frederick R. Weisman was a Minneapolis native who became well known as an art collector in Los Angeles.
After his death in 1994, the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, saw to it that his Los Angeles estate was designed to serve as a showcase for his personal collection of 20th-century art.
Located in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles, is a two-story Mediterranean Revival house designed in the late 1920’s by Los Angeles architect Gordon B. Kaufmann. The Weisman home exhibits the fine craftsmanship characteristic of the period, including custom decorative treatments on the walls and ceilings.
There is also an annex built on the property to the northwest and designed by Frank Israel also featured on this site.
