    Daco-Verlag Günter Bläse The Monotypes of Sam Francis, 1994, pp. 118-119

  • Catalogue Essay

    The birth of a monotype is more like a cataclysm. In the making of these prints, Francis uses presses of enormous power, and the color and the paper are fused together in a moment of volcanic magnitude, generating poisonous fumes and great heat. A certain number of required elements are assembled, and in a few seconds the new thing emerges. Pontus Hulten
