The American painter Sam Francis (1923 – 1994), associated with the second generation of abstract expressionists, is an artist of color and light whose work is strongly marked by spiritual, philosophical, and pictorial issues. A Transatlantique artist, Francis lived and worked in the United States, France, Japan, Mexico, and Switzerland. Art historian Pierre Wat invites eight artists to cast an eye on this fundamental work of the 20th century.
