LITERATURE
Philip Fry, Alex Colville: Paintings, Prints and Processes, 1983 - 1994, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, 1994, page 156, reproduced page 157, and the preparatory drawings, paintings and photographs for this serigraph reproduced pages 137, 156 and 158


Philip Fry notes that "The theme for Köln Express seems to have first occurred in sketches done while Colville was in Hong Kong in early 1985." A Polaroid image reveals that Colville used himself as the model for the man on the bench.
