1947 (pencil, t.r.); Colin McCahon (pencil, b.r.); Rodney, I promised you these quite some time ago as they really belong with your painting. I don't think they are of particular value as works of art but possibly are of interest with the painting. As I said, they belong with the painting. Colin (on mount)
McCahon's date may be retrospective. This drawing - along with the second [Otago Peninsula] drawing this it is mounted with - are more likely to date from 1946, when McCahon began working on Rodney Kennedy's painting of the Otago Peninsula.
