1945–1953

ANNOUNCING NEW SUBSCRIPTION ACCESS!

Welcome to the Sam Francis: Online Catalogue Raisonné Project, a scholarly resource dedicated to the life and oeuvre of the American-born abstract expressionist Sam Francis (1923–1994).

 

This installment documents all known unique works attributed to the artist from 1945 through 1953. The Sam Francis Foundation will regularly release portions of the catalogue raisonné sequentially for artworks through 1994 as we continue our research and documentation.

 

This project is a subscription-based educational service.

 

There are two ways to subscribe:

 

  • BASIC (no cost)
  • EXPANDED (annual fee)

 

Please see the PLAN DETAILS for complete information.

Due to the ongoing health crisis, the Sam Francis Foundation Online Store is temporarily CLOSED. Due to our small staff and current civic priorities we will not be able to prepare and ship any inventory at this time.

 

We are continuing to work remotely on the Sam Francis: Online Catalogue Raisonne Project. Please visit us there.

 

SENDING ALL OF OUR VERY BEST WISHES TO EVERYONE TO STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY.
