Sidney Nolan

AN INTRODUCTION TO HIS LIFE AND LEGACY

by Simon Mundy

Sidney Nolan (1917-1992) was one of the most innovative and versatile artists of the 20th century. In his native Australia his work defined the identity of the landscape and the mythology of the continent for two generations. He was controversial, prolific and often infuriated critics by refusing to let his art fit into convenient envelopes.

Published in 2017 by the Sidney Nolan Trust as part of centenary celebrations of Nolan’s birth, Simon Mundy’s short biography introduces Nolan and the context of his life for the general reader and art lover. It explains the complexities of the man and the stature of his work - and describes the way his legacy is continued through the Sidney Nolan Trust a century after Nolan’s birth.

Simon Mundy is a poet, novelist and biographer as well as being an adviser of cultural policy to many international organisations. He was a friend of Sidney and Mary Nolan from 1983 when they all moved to the same border area of Wales. He has served as a Trustee of the Sidney Nolan Trust for many years. www.sidneynolantrust.org
