Brief Bio
Sam Francis (American , b. 1923 - 1994 )

American painter and printmaker Sam Francis, born in 1923 in San Mateo, California, is renowned for his California Abstract Expressionist work. His career as an artist started following an accident leading to spinal tuberculosis while serving in the US Army Air Corps. He started to paint for distraction in 1944, studying privately under David Park in 1947. He subsequently relinquished his earlier medical and psychology studies in favor of painting, completing his BA (1949) and MA (1950) at the University of California at Berkeley. During this period he experimented with different styles of painting, notably Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism.
