Collection Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth. Purchased with assistance from the Queen Elizabeth II Arts Council of New Zealand in 1975.

Don Peebles' work is carefully controlled, thoughtful and precise, pared down to a few formal elements. In 'Linear series no. 15', a spatial illusion is created between the luminous quality of the blue canvas and the suggestion of space provided by the lines drawn on it.
