The Weisman's were very infuriated and tasteful collectors of mid to late 20th Century art. The big names are all there, beautifully situated in a Beverly Hills mansion off Sunset Blvd. Go to the website or call to book an appointment, as that is required....More

You might try Bonham's or Christie's auction houses. We are not really qualified to comment on a purchase we did not make. Best of luck! Thanks, FRWAF
