Auction: American & European Works of Art - 2930B Location: Boston Date / Time: September 23, 2016 12:00PM


Sam Francis (American, 1923-1994)

Untitled (SF-308), 1986, edition of 50 plus proofs, published by Nantenshi Gallery, Tokyo (Lembark, L 267). Signed "Sam Francis" in pencil within the image l.r., numbered "48/50" in pencil l.l. Color lithograph on paper, image/sheet size 26 5/8 x 35 1/8 in. (67.5 x 89.0 cm), framed.
Condition: Deckled edges, floated within the mat, not examined out of frame.

Provenance: A private California collection.
Estimate $1,500-2,000

The work cannot be examined out of the frame because of its scale, but the sheet is floated so all edges of the recto are visible, and it appears to be hinged at the upper corners rather than laid down. The print appears to be in good condition. There are no additional issues to report.
