Note:In the 1960s Sam Francis explored what would come to be referred to as his “Edge paintings”. Sketch is a particularly early example of these edge paintings. The colour is restricted to the upper and right sheet edge exposing a vast white, untouched element of the composition made solely of the paper itself. Francis explored this on paper, canvas and in lithography into the early 1970s.
