About this artwork

Probably the most famous Sidney Nolan painting, Ned Kelly 1946 depicts Australia's most famous bush ranger. Nolan's Ned Kelly series tells us the story of Ned Kelly and his gang during the 19th century. There are 27 in the series although only a few have been published as prints. The original is held at the National Gallery of Australia uses enamel paint on composition board measuring about 121 x 90 cm. "This is Kelly the defiant. I put Kelly on top of the horse in a particularly orderly manner. I wanted an air of perfect authority. It looks simple but I wanted the maximum feeling of space, so the cloud appears through the aperture in the mask." - Sidney Nolan

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.
