Sam Francis
1986
Lithograph in colors on wove paper

Price: $9,100 USD

Sam Francis (American, 1923-1994) Like his contemporary Joan Mitchell, Sam Francis was a second generation Abstract Expressionist influenced both by the fervor of the new American Style and by the art and physical environment of France and Europe more broadly. In addition, Francis became deeply influenced by Zen Buddhism through his travels in Japan, and later by Jungian psychology. Many of his works are easily distinguishable from that of other Ab Ex artists for the importance of white, open space in the composition—a strategy finding its zenith in Francis’s Edge Paintings in which the vast majority of the canvas remains untouched by hue. Through this and other series, the artist simultaneously activates the ostensibly incongruous Ab Ex camps of Action and Color Field Painting, bridging the two through holistic interpretations of the mind and spirit offered by eastern Philosophy, and compelling psychological schools of thought.
