Commentary
[q.a.], review of S. B. Kennedy , David Crone Paintings, 1963-1999 in Books Ireland (Feb. 2000), pp. 32-33; 'so integral is colour to Crone's work, that we find these [monochrome reproductions], interesting only in terms of technical analysis of tone, draughtmanship and brushwork'. (p.33)
