"Untitled" (SFE-001) Original Signed Etching by Sam Francis, 1982
An original signed etching by American Artist Sam Francis (1923-1994) titled "Untitled (SFE-001), 1982. Hand pencil signed and numbered by Francis: 59/100. Image size: 23.5" x 18". Framed size: 32" x 26". A fantastic Sam Francis etching; one of Francis' better works from his printmaking during the 1980's.
Post WW II artist Sam Francis remains one of the country's premier contemporary masters. Rooted in 1950s and 60s Abstract Expressionism which was concerned with giant color fields and painterly dripping gestures.
Francis sold his first painting to the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1955. He lived and worked in Paris, Mexico, Hong Kong, and New York, but it is the Southern California climate that pervades his work. In vibrant oils and translucent watercolors, Francis culls from the sun, sea, and sky an unmistakable and unsinkable buoyancy as abstract forms float sensuously and weightlessly. Standing in front of a Francis, one is pulled into a watery world of vivid color and pulsating forms. The dripping is energetic, the spectral colors, quietly spiritual. As private collectors and museums—such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York—have attested, there is a singular joy in owning a Sam Francis.
