Description

G.H. Brown writes: McCahon described this work to me as 'a sort of Gate', & laughingly said that the title could be Abstract: Gate, but whether that is accurate enough to use as a generic title for the complete set, to which this work belongs, seems doubtful. There are substantial differences when the basic images are used in these rubbings are compared to those used in his Gate paintings & one must remember McCahon's laugh in this respect. Purchased by G.H. Brown from The Gallery, 64 Symonds St, Auckland in 1962 for 6 gns.
Signed & dated with black crayon l.r.: CM '61.
