About the Artist
California-born abstract expressionist painter Sam Francis (1923–1994), is regarded as one of the 20th century’s leading interpreters of light and color. Sam Francis maintained studios in Bern, New York, Los Angeles, Paris, and Tokyo, making him the first post–World War II American painter whose reach was truly international. Throughout a long and prolific career, Francis created thousands of paintings as well as works on paper, prints, and monotypes. His work holds references to New York abstract expressionism, color field painting, Chinese and Japanese art, French impressionism, and his own Bay Area roots.
Made in collaboration with Sam Francis Foundation, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of these products will support Creativity Matters: the Campaign for Creativity in Learning, the signature program of the Sam Francis Foundation.
