Literature & references:

Harry Nicholson, Ron Robertson-Swann Survey - 1965-1975, Newcastle City Art Gallery, 1975 exhibition catalogue:
[Of the paintings of the early-mid 70s] “paint of the most vivid colours is applied in a succession of brushed, stained and poured techniques. Not only do the best of them have autonomy and flow, they seem charged, Nancy Borlase of The Bulletin described one rightly as ‘a molten landscape with the inborn potency of a volcano.’” Op. cit. (Nancy Borlase, The Bulletin, 10 March, 1973);

Joseph Burke, Robert Lindsay and Sue Walker, The Seventies — Australian Paintings and Tapestries from the Collection of the National Australia Bank, collection catalogue, NAB, Melbourne, 1982, see p 91 for Downtown, 1973, a work of similar scale and palette
