The Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart presents The Great Graphic Boom: Art in America,1960–1990.
In cooperation with the National Museum of Oslo, the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart will present exceptional works of American graphic art of the period from 1960 to 1990. Printmaking had previously served primarily to make religious or political content accessible to a broad public and as an important means communication in other areas as well. In the early twentieth century it was above all the German Expressionists who devoted themselves to this technique quite extensively. Decades later, in the late 1950s, the U.S. then experienced a veritable “graphic boom”. At this point in time, the most prominent artists of the American avant-garde – exponents of Abstract Expressionism, Hard Edge, Pop Art, Minimal Art and other currents – began experimenting and working with a wide variety of printmaking techniques.

Gallery Delaive is proud to announce Sam Francis: 25 portraits. Sam Francis’ (1923- 1994) career spanned approximately 50 years and includes a staggering amount of paintings, drawings and prints. Mostly famous for his abstract action paintings, influenced by the work of Clyfford Still and Jackson Pollock, this exhibition aims to show a different side of the artist Sam Francis, showing a series of (self)portraits, painted throughout his career.
Interested in Jungian psychology, Francis was committed to the exploration of his interior life. Carl Gustav Jung, a former student of Sigmund Freud, developed a unique form of psychotherapy, called analytic psychology. In the 1970’s Francis began working with Jungian therapists allowing his unconscious to dictate his process and painting matrix compositions as well as a number of selfportraits. Some of these selfportraits were shown at Galerie Kornfeld und Klipstein in Bern, Switzerland, in 1977.
Sam Francis: 25 portraits shows a unique collection of (self)portraits by Sam Francis, never showed together before. A rare chance to take a look into the psyche of the artist.
