SAM FRANCIS (1923-1994) Noted for his lyrical, colorful abstract works, was one of the first American artists to experiment with “empty-center” painting. His characteristic brilliant colors in overlapping and dripping profusion in a dense unified style is typical of his most popular works. Vast canvases with unpainted central areas are defined, accented, or dominated by strokes and drips in bold colors around the extremities of the canvas. His paintings in the 1956 “Twelve Americans” exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City gained him a world-wide reputation.
