Description
Beginning in the 1960s, Sam Francis developed his personal form of spontaneous and gestural drippings and Sulfur Water is a fine example. He created a “frame” of colorful forms that would draw the viewer's eye toward a white central shape seemly splashed with colors that flit over the surface. Despite the spontaneous look of this lithograph, Joe Funk printed three colors, blue, red, and lemon yellow, in three runs from three stones.
