Biography

Born Doris Feigenbaum in 1931, she is the daughter of Dorothy Bamberger of New York and B. Joseph Feigenbaum. She had two siblings: Ann F. Rossi and Joseph L. Feigenbaum. She was married to Don Fisher and was a long-time member of Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco. Their three sons – Robert J. Fisher, William S. Fisher, and John J.

Fisher is a noted art devotee. She loaned the collection she and her husband spent their lives collecting, which consists of 1,100 works by 185 artists, including Andy Warhol, Ellsworth Kelly, and Richard Serra, to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, which, with her support, is now the largest modern art museum in the U.S.

She has been named as one of the 100 Most Powerful Women by Forbes Magazine.
