Sam Francis (American, 1923-1994) - Oil on Canvas
Item Details
Description
This lot consists of an oil painting on loose canvas, executed in the modern art style of artist Sam Francis (American, 1923-1994). "Sam Francis" appears at lower right.

Francis was initially influenced by the work of abstract expressionists such as Mark Rothko, Arshile Gorky and Clyfford Still. His loose style was most influenced by the work of Jackson Pollock. He later became loosely associated with the second generation of abstract expressionists, including Joan Mitchell and Helen Frankenthaler, who were increasingly interested in the expressive use of color. But Francis never fit neatly into any school of art. He charted his own trajectory as one of the first global artists working around the world.

PROVENANCE:
Private Collection

DIMENSIONS:
Overall unframed canvas measures approximately 25.75" x 26"
