SAM FRANCIS American 1923 – 1994
Francis’s abstract compositions are amongst the most innovative explorations of colour and light in twentieth-century art. A leading second-generation exponent of Abstract Expressionism, Francis used colour to explore the subjective. His treatment of colour and space was profoundly influenced by a 1957 visit to Japan, where he eventually established a studio.
