LACMA Acquisition of Idelle Weber’s “Jump Rope” Mentioned on The Hollywood Reporter

Idelle Weber‘s sculpture “Jump Rope,” 1966-67, is mentioned in the Hollywood Reporter web article, “Will Ferrell, Ryan Seacrest Join for LACMA Collectors Committee 30th Anniversary Dinner,” by Jordan Riefe.

Excerpt:

“A Spanish colonial painting, Antonio de Torres’ ‘The Elevation of the Cross,’ could be had for $225,000 (Julian Sands advocated for it) and a pair of pop art sculptures — Idelle Weber’s ‘Jump Rope’ ($250,000) and Claes Oldenburg’s ‘Typewriter Eraser’ ($450,000) — also awaited consideration, as did Eugene Delacroix’s ‘Still Life of Dahlias, Zinnias and Plums on a Table.’

‘For me, it’s very worthy of being shown in a museum. So my immediate reaction is we should consider that as a committee,’ pop art collector and CAA agent Joel Lubin said, choosing ‘Jump Rope’ over the Oldenburg.’
