Further information

"These were hardly prints really. They were done with a screen, very thin. At that time Alan McCulloch, who was responsible for the Georges Prize, required candidates to enter a painting and a drawing. No one was drawing in those days, so the basis for the drawing I entered was this print. I did two or three of these."

Georges Gallery, Georges invitation art prize (1969), Melbourne, 1969. cat.no. 1; NOTE: NGA impression was exhibited; NOTE: Senbergs entered this screenprint in the Georges Prize as a drawing. For him, it is a drawing rather than an editioned print. However he printed at least four, each one a little different.
