The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art received a windfall of 195 works of art from 9 donors following the massive Fisher donation. The gifts include works by artists as diverse as Cy Twombly, Cindy Sherman, Jackson Pollock, Jeff Koons and Richard Tuttle. The SFist site breaks it down for us:
- A major concentration of 30 sculptures and works on paper by Joseph Beuys.
- Works by Japanese postwar photographers Yayoi Kusama, Daido Moriyama, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Shomei Tomatsu, whose 2006 SFMOMA retrospective was one of the museum’s outstanding photography shows of recent memory.
- Twelve “outstanding works” by Bruce Nauman, three of which were made in the 1960s when he lived and worked in the Bay Area.
- Multiple or signature pieces by a who’s who of modern and contemporary art, including, in addition to the aforementioned artists, Francis Bacon, Jasper Johns, Yves Klein, John Baldessari, Matthew Barney, Georg Baselitz, Robert Gober, Eva Hesse , Sigmar Polke, Ed Ruscha, Thomas Schütte, Richard Tuttle, and Luc Tuymans.
