Auction: American & European Works of Art - 2581B Location: Boston Date / Time: February 03, 2012 12:00PM


Sam Francis (American, 1923-1994)

Untitled, 1988, edition of 50 plus proofs, published by The Litho Shop, Inc., Santa Monica (Lembark, L280). Signed "Sam Francis" in pencil (within the image) l.l., numbered "AP 2/11" in pencil (within the image) l.r. Color lithograph on paper, image/sheet size 45 x 29 in. (114.2 x 73.5 cm), framed.
Condition: Minor handling crease to edge near corner u.r. and l.r., not examined out of frame.

Estimate $2,000-3,000

The work is "floated." There is a dent along the upper edge near the right6 corner, as well as two unpressed creases near the lower right corner. Although it has not been removed from its frame, there are no other visible condition issues to report. The mat behind the sheet shows evidence of water damage at the base of the frame, but this does not effect the print itself.
