An untitled slide in Arkley’s archive (reproduced here) carries a Roslyn Oxley9 label, and is identified, provisionally, as cat.no.1 in the 1984 exhibition (sold at the time, according to a gallery letter in Arkley’s files, describing the work as on ‘rag paper’).

This drawing re-surfaced in 2008, after a long time without mention, in a private collection in Melbourne.
