Lithograph from the artist Sam Francis originally issued with the Parisian art publication "One Cent Life."

Sam Francis was an American painter whose breakthrough into America came with his participation in the exhibition of, Twelve Americans at the New York Museum of Modern Art in 1956. During this time of Sam's life, his style changed from monochrome compositions to colorful ones. Sam Francis was initially influenced by abstract expressionists and later became associated with second-generation abstract expressionists. Sam Francis spent the 1950s in Paris and it was there his first exhibition was held at the Galerie Nina Dausset. His art while there was influenced by his exposure to French modern painting, Asian culture, and Zen Buddhism. During the 50s, Sam's art would evolve through a series of stages from monochromatic abstractions to richly colored murals. Sam Francis then changed his technique again in the 1970s by covering his surfaces with a net-like structure, and again when he began to use lithography, etching, and monotype. He created some expressive compositions while experimenting in the 1980s with partially running colors. With this style, Sam received some large commissions for mural work.
