Inspired by Sidney Nolan

By Sarah Newton
Melbourne, Victoria

About this Curation

Australian artist Sidney Nolan is the best recognised for his naïve, expressionist interpretations of the Australian landscape and local icons. His work is most notable for shining a spotlight on the infamous outlaw, Ned Kelly.
.
This iconic series transformed the Australian painting scene of the 20th century, launching both Nolan and Australian art at the time to international audiences. Nolan's paintings of Australia's historical and legendary figures are featured in The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Tate Modern in London and The National Gallery of Australia.
.
It's no surprise that contemporary artists have been inspired by such a remarkable painter, which is celebrated in this curation.
