About this artwork

This is one of the prints from the Ned Kelly series depicting Australia's most famous bush ranger, Ned Kelly. 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. "The tiled floor in red and white was in a house I was in once. Kelly told Judge Barry that he would soon see him in the next world, which is not a very polite thing to say to a man who’s just sentenced you to death. Strangely enough, Mr Justice Barry, a great man, who did many good deeds, went home to bed and died a fortnight later, from, it is said, a septic carbuncle." - 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.

What Our Customers Say: 

You recently replaced the glass in a large multi-photo frame for me that I was doing up for my Mum for Xmas. I was very happy with the service I received. Not only were your prices easily affordable, but my frame came back much quicker than I expected so close to Christmas. Mum is now thoroughly enjoying all the memories (both recent and old) hanging on her wall for everyone to see. Thanks.
