“Right or wrong, Sam Francis’s works remind the European of Monet’s late period. Let there be no mistake–it is not the semblance of colors and the atmosphere that justifies this comparison with Monet, but the miracle that, from an abstract conception, bursts forth the image of a lyrical pantheism to which Monet and Bonnard arrived at by means of the figurative, with Francis continuously transposing it and casting a spell over it.” - A. Rüdlinger
