About "Untitled I (SFE-044)"

The trial proofs are the most valuable proofs and do not form part of the edition. These proofs were used by Sam Francis while he was conceptualizing the final print. Sam Francis created thirteen of these unique trial proofs to see how the print would look with different color combinations. These prints are the most highly valued and sought-after by collectors as they are true uniques.
