Sam Francis, UNTITLED, 1990

A new selling exhibition at Frankfurt's Jörg Schuhmacher gallery proves that American Abstract Expressionist Sam Francis was as audacious and experimental as his better-known cohorts.

Sam Francis The work of Sam Francis contains many visual indicators reminiscent of the "action painting" or art informel schools of Abstract Expressionism. What made Francis a unique painter was his technique of tachisme, in which heavy blotches of free-flowing oil paints were allowed to drip down and, in the process, create an accidental design. In Blue Balls VII, which was included in the 1964 Post-Painterly Abstraction exhibit, Francis used far less paint than he was accustomed to.
