California born abstract expressionist painter Sam Francis, 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, original prints, and monotypes. His work holds references to Abstract Expressionism, Color Field painting, Chinese and Japanese art, Impressionism, and his own Bay Area roots.
Sam Francis’ later life was divided between Santa Monica and West Marin. He is buried in a small cemetery in Olema, Marin County.
