Sam Francis "Berlin Red" at the Martin-Gropius-Bau
Sam Francis’s monumental 24-by-36-foot painting Berlin Red, which was painted in Los Angeles as a commission for the Neue Nationalgalerie in 1968-70, was recently on display at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin, as part of "Pacific Standard Time." During the exhibition, Sam Francis Foundation Director Debra Burchett-Lere was able to view the work and admire its scale and presence.
