Paintings from 1968

Because I posted some fashion images from 1968 yesterday, I decided to follow up today with some paintings from 1968. They're from the 'The Field', the first, major Australian survey show of hard-edge abstraction, held at the NGV in Melbourne. Quite a few of my friends are strongly influenced by the era, and it's of special interest for me as my uncle, Paul Partos, was in the show. His is the top work, and you can see more of his paintings here. The middle, yellow work was done by Janet Dawson and the painting below it was done by James Doolin. All the images were scanned from the catlogue. xxxx
