Edmund Capon says of Nolan that he was the great Australian painter of the twentieth century. The catalogue, accompanying the Sidney Nolan Retrospective exhibition, reproduces approximately 116 paintings. It is presented in chronological order, underlining the evolution of Nolan’s vision from its genesis in St Kilda during the late 1930s to the United Kingdom half a century later. This allows a clear view of where his intentions took him with quite startling logic in his last years, when he needed to look backwards to move forward, pinpointing ideas that had always remained deeply embedded in his painterly consciousness.
Artist: Sidney Nolan
