Lot description
Sam Francis (1923-1994) was an integral part of the Abstract Expressionist movement best known for his use of vivid colors and paint splattering techniques. This example is quite consistent with his oeuvre, with splashes of color adding to the dynamic tone of the composition. Francis earned his B.A. in 1949 and M.A. in 1950 from the University of California, Berkeley. He also received an honorary PhD from the University in 1968. Francis' work has been included in numerous museum exhibitions, including a solo exhibition at the Pasadena Art Museum, California, a Retrospective at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California, and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
