Literature & references:

Robert Hughes, The Art of Australia, Pelican, 1966, see plate 109 for a similar work:
After quoting criticism of Rose's first solo show in 1957 in which the critic recognises the similarity to the work of Portuguese Art Informel artist Maria Helena Vieira da Silva, Hughes writes "Rose's art looks impersonal.  His paint is thin, drawn on rather than painted, with none of the consciousness of matière his contemporaries celebrate... This fastidious, unshowmanlike performance deeply involves Rose in the articulation of space.  His work can seem arid, but it reveals an intellectual poise, a discipline and a concentration of image rare in Australian painting."  (op. cit. p 267 - 269)
