Untitled [Winter Notations variant] 1974 [W:P]

Synthetic polymer paint and ink on paper, 45.2 x 69.6 (sheet)
Signed and dated [l.l. in pencil: ‘H.Arkley 74’; also signed and dated in pencil on verso: ‘Howard Arkley 75’]
Private collection, Melbourne

This work, closely related to Winter Notations 1975 [W/P], is extant in a mount stamped 1979, suggesting it may have been exhibited. Unfortunately, it is in poor condition – dirty, and with some silver-fish damage.

The date inscribed on the front is preferred here to that on the back (where Arkley’s hand-writing suggests the inscription may have been added later).
