Literature & references:

Reference:  Robert Hughes, The Art of Australia, Pelican, 1966, p 282:  “Properly speaking, Sydney has harboured only two abstract expressionists. They are Stanislaus Rapotec and Peter Upward, and Upward’s work is the purer: his paintings refer only to their own condition, while Rapotec’s have many figurative overtones.”
