Literature & references:

Reference:  Bernard Smith, Australian Painting, OUP, 1962:
"Among women in Sydney, Margot Lewers is one of the most accomplished artists working with abstract form... In Melbourne both Erica McGilchrist and Dawn Sime produced competent abstract paintings during the 1950s." op. cit. p 317;
Denise Hickey, Gerald and Margo Lewers: Their Lives and their work, Grasstree Press, NSW, 1982:
After very little art training, and once her children started school (her fellow artist husband Gerald Lewers was at the height of his career in sculpture) Margot began classes under Desiderious Orban in 1945.  "In the early sixties Margo's work became its most emotional.  Thick texture, rich resonant colours and receding tonal areas replaced her earlier more structured work... Elwyn Lynn had introduced matter painting to Australia in the early 1960s. Margot was never interested in the French and Spanish painters for she felt they did violence to their materials.  However her work did become textural, reflecting Matter Painters' use of other materials such as cement, glue and sand." (op. cit. p 92)
