Little of note regarding Arkley’s works was recorded in 2018, with no significant new publications and minimal auction activity.

During the year, however, the major late double-sided drawing Study for Nick Cave (1999) was acquired for a private collection from the Arkley Estate, and a group of early drawings was donated to the TarraWarra collection: see now ‘White’ works on paper (c.1974-78), nos.139, 158, 185, 241 and 244.
