The Fisher Collection is housed in San Francisco on four floors of SFMOMA. The story of the Fishers, local to San Francisco and owners of The Gap, is fascinating. Their post WWII art includes both American and European artists, such as Gerhard Richter, Alexander Calder, Joan Mitchell, Chuck Close, Cy Twombly, Mark di Suvero, Eric Fischl, Philip Guston, Elsworth Kelly, Anselm Kiefer and Mark Bradford. We will review the collection, look into some of the artists’ lives and get to know the very generous Fishers.
