Nolan, Sir Sidney Robert OM AC (Australian, 1917-1992), The Alarm, 1970-1971, (from The Ned Kelly Series), serigraph printed in colors, 18.75 x 25 inches, 475 x 636 mm., pencil signed and numbered 59/60, Painter Sidney Nolan’s surrealistic depictions of the natural landscape and historical figures of Australia helped shape the modern visual identity of his native country. Nolan studied at the National Gallery of Victoria Art School, and his early influences included European modernist painters like Pablo Picasso and Paul Cézanne as well as the poetry of Arthur Rimbaud. Beginning in 1938, he received the support of art patrons Sunday and John Reed; through them he met members of the Angry Penguins, a group of avant-garde artists including Albert Tucker, Joy Hester, John Perceval, and Arthur Boyd that sought to modernize Australian art. Between 1946–47, Nolan produced a series of paintings depicting tales of the iconic 19th-century Australian outlaw Ned Kelly. These are now held by the National Gallery of Australia. Nolan’s image of Kelly wearing his box-like helmet is used as a symbol of Australian identity to this day.
