The Doris and Donald Fisher Collection is among the world’s greatest private collections of contemporary art. Founders of San Francisco–based Gap Inc., the couple began collecting prints to enliven the company’s offices in the mid-1970s, and they soon expanded their efforts to include paintings, sculpture, and drawings. Today their collection, which features notable concentrations of work by a number of the most seminal artists of our time, including Alexander Calder, Chuck Close, Ellsworth Kelly, Anselm Kiefer, Roy Lichtenstein, Agnes Martin, Gerhard Richter, Richard Serra, and Andy Warhol, is on extended loan to SFMOMA, where it is presented in tandem with the museum’s renowned collections of modern and contemporary painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, design, and media art. This lavishly illustrated volume offers an introduction to the Fisher Collection at SFMOMA, highlighting the areas of focus it shares with the museum’s painting and sculpture holdings.
