Discover the genius of Sidney Nolan, one of Australia’s greatest painters, in this major survey of his celebrated career and extraordinary life.
Nolan transformed our view of the Australian landscape, creating spectacular and original compositions. His work was unpredictable, imaginative and poetic and led him to become our first internationally acclaimed artist.
Consisting of over 100 works, the exhibition includes many of Nolan’s finest masterpieces which have become indelible icons of 20th-century Australian art – the famed Ned Kelly works, early St Kilda and Wimmera paintings, the spectacular Riverbend landscape and Burke and Wills leaving Melbourne. It also features magnificent works from private collections which have rarely been seen by the public.
