DiVerse on Nolan

DiVerse at the Art Gallery of NSW, the 5th and 12th December, 2007.

This exhibition, the first major retrospective since Nolan's death in 1992, presents a selection of his most important masterpieces of landscape, Ned Kelly, and other themes of Australian and European history. Consisting of approximately 135 paintings, this new retrospective underlines the evolution of Nolan's vision from its genesis in St Kilda during the late 1930s to the United Kingdom a half a century later when the artist finally released his passion for large-scale spray-painted abstractions.
