Transferences: Sidney Nolan in Britain

with contributions from Paula Dredge, Shaun Gladwell, Kate McMillan, Barry Pearce, Simon Pierse and Bill Shaffer

Sidney Nolan (1917-1992) is one of the foremost international artists of the twentieth century. Born in Melbourne of Irish descent, he relocated to Britain permanently in 1953. Transferences: Sidney Nolan in Britain provides a long overdue account of Nolan’s life and work in Britain, and reinstates him as a significant figure in the post-war British art scene.

Published by the Sidney Nolan Trust and Pallant House Gallery as part of centenary celebrations of Sir Sidney Nolan’s birth, this fully-illustrated book includes new contributions from international scholars and contemporary artists.  It explores Nolan’s critical reception in England; his diverse subject matter drawn from Australian history but fused with European myths, legends and poetry; his innovative set designs for ballet and opera; and his experimental use of materials and techniques, including computer generated collages created on the Quantel Paintbox.  Through this extensive work, Nolan’s lifelong mission to be truly modern is revealed.
