Gary Catalano, The Age, 'Crucial role of the still life', pg. 14, Melbourne, 10 Apr 1985, 14. "No viewer should neglect the four self-portraits in the show. Two oils show Lincoln's washed-out face positioned within an eternal frame (each work is thus a painting of a painting); while the two charcoal drawings show the artist hunching his shoulders and glowering suspiciously behind his glasses.

Ronald Millar, The Herald, 'Booth's fearful visions', pg. 17, Melbourne, 04 Apr 1985, 17. "His charcoal portrait is more emphatic than the painted ones. Lincoln's subtle use of color in the greys asks to be contemplated slowly".
