Calder to Warhol: Introducing the Fisher Collection

Exhibition catalogue for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Interview by Neal Benezera; essay by Gary Garrels

From the Museum’s website:
Comprising more than 1,100 works by 185 artists, the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection is one of the greatest private collections of modern and contemporary art in the world. SFMOMA has forged a historic partnership with the Fisher family to share this extraordinary collection with the people of San Francisco, housing and displaying art from the Fishers’ holdings alongside works from the SFMOMA collection in a new museum expansion. Over the years, the Fishers amassed a museum-quality collection of works by 20th- and 21st-century American and European masters from movements including Pop Art, Figurative Art, Minimalism, Abstraction, Conceptualism, Photorealism, and Color-field painting. The Fishers collected the work of artists they admired in depth, and the collection features major groupings of seminal works by Alexander Calder, Chuck Close, Anselm Kiefer, Roy Lichtenstein, Agnes Martin, Gerhard Richter, Richard Serra, and Andy Warhol, among others.
