Sam Gilliam, the groundbreaking abstract artist known for his work with draped canvas, died June 25, 2022, aged 88, the galleries that represented him confirmed in a joint statement on Monday.

"Sam Gilliam was one of the giants of Modernism. He was a great friend and great artist who was able to convey the shared torments and triumphs of life through the universal language of abstraction," Arne Glimcher, the owner of one of the galleries that represented Gilliam, said in the statement.
