Francis at Galerie Nina Dausset, Paris, 1952

Listed here, in chronological order, are the known exhibitions that feature artworks from 1945 through 1949. Each entry shows the venue, location, dates, and traveling venue locations. If the exhibition has a catalogue it is mentioned with a link to the catalogue entry in the Literature References. Artworks exhibited are listed with any confirmed page number, plate or figure references, and checklist information. 

When permission has been granted we have provided links to PDF documents of the exhibition catalogue. These may be broken into several parts (Part 1, Part 2, etc.) as file size limitations dictate. When available we have also linked external sources for further information or full references. A new web browsing window will open when an external link is selected.
