    LITERATURE
    Nolan '37-'47, exh. cat., Institute of Contemporary Art, London, May 1962, cat. no. 26 (illus.)

    The present work makes interesting comparison with lot 16 painted five years earlier. In the intervening period Nolan had moved decisively away from abstraction and in the present work we see the lattice work of the rollercoaster acting as a grid across the land and water beyond.
