Sam Francis (American, 1923-1994).
This work is offered unframed.
One of the twentieth century’s most profound Abstract Expressionists, American artist Sam Francis is noted as one of the first post-World War II painters to develop an international reputation. Francis created thousands of paintings as well as works on paper, prints and monotypes, housed in major museum collections and institutions around the world. Regarded as one of the leading interpreters of color and light, his work holds references to New York abstract expressionism, color field painting, Chinese and Japanese art, French impressionism and his own Bay Area roots.

There is faint discoloring at the edges as well as faint staining towards the lower left edge.
Additionally, there is a quarter inch, half-moon stain towards the middle, faint buckling of the paper inherent to the artist's use of watercolor, and minor toning of the paper due to age.
