About this artwork

Sidney Nolan spend much of his youth swimming in the baths at St Kilda, Victoria. Nolan painted a number of ‘bather’s themed artworks and in 1943 painted Bathers where he shows us the bathers from a bird's eye view even though the picture plane is flat. The Bathers takes to tot a place and time where Nolan remembers happy times.
This poster is a lithograph and is published by a leading Australian art print publisher.

1917 - 1992 Sidney Nolan was born in Melbourne on 22 April 1917. He studied intermittently at the National Gallery Art School, Melbourne, from 1934, and engraving and lithography under S.W.Hayter at the Atelier 17, Paris in 1957. During the Second World War, Nolan was conscripted into the army and served at Dimboola in the Wimmera District of Victoria 1942-1945. In 1946 he began a series of paintings on the theme of the bush ranger Ned Kelly, and later painted personal interpretations of historical and legendary figures such as Eliza Fraser and Burke and Wills, in which he expressed the feeling of the country and the timelessness of the myths. Nolan also painted a series of works portraying Central Australia. From 1950 Nolan lived mainly in Britain and became Australia's most internationally celebrated painter. He also designed sets for ballet and opera and provided illustrations for books. He died in London on 28 November 1992, aged 75.
