Exhibited at: Scottsdale Center for the Arts, The Paintings of Sam Francis from the Collection of Jean Rouge, 1996, no. 13, illustrated, p. 12). Bernard Jacobson Gallery, London, Sam Francis, 5th June - 29th August 2014. [44] Literature: Debra Burchett-Lere, Sam Francis: Catalogue Raisonné of the Canvas and Panel Paintings 1946-1994, Berkeley, 2011, no. 737 (illustrated on DVD) In 1986, the collector Jean Rouge first encountered the majestic multicolored paintings by California artist, Sam Francis. Inspired by the riveting cacophony of color and form, Jean Rouge immediately sought to befriend the artist whose works he had begun collecting, a bond that would ultimately thrive under a shared mutual solace in part to their shared affliction of cancer. Jean Rouge sought refuge in the lively surfaces of the artist’s expansive canvases, ascribing to the artist’s belief in the healing properties of art and the influence that color bears on the health of one’s spirit, mind and body." (Exh. Cat. Scottsdale Center for the Arts, The Paintings of Sam Francis from the Collection of Jean Rouge, 1996, p. 2)
