‘Catalogue of the exhibition held 22 Aug.-27 Sept., 2008, at the Ivan Dougherty Gallery, Sydney.”Held at Anthony Horderns’ Fine Art Galleries, Sydney, Ralph Balson’s 1941 exhibition comprised twenty-one works that constituted Australia’s first one-person exhibition of completely non-figurative painting … The visual relationships between the paintings and their accumulative effect when displayed together were quailities orchestrated by Balson in this exhibition that are arguably crucial to developing an understanding of the work … It is these qualities that we hope to explore in the present exhibition ‘R-Balson-/41′. Our aim has been to locate all of the surviving works and exhibit them together for the first time since 1941. …”–P. 3.’ – Trove
