Nolan and Ned Kelly

OPENING TIMES: Wed - Fri 11am-4.30pm / Sat, Sun & Bank Holiday Mon 12pm-4.30pm

Ned Kelly:  Nolan was told stories of the Police’s struggle to capture Ned Kelly and his gang in the bush in Victoria by his grandfather who was a policeman involved in the search. These exciting tales triggered Nolan’s imagination and began a lifelong fascination with Kelly.  Prints in this exhibition will show how, for Nolan,  Kelly became a symbol of universal man and his depiction changed repeatedly and included versions of him as outlaw to a Christ-like figure of universal suffering.  Visitors will also see how Nolan even painted his self-portrait with Kelly’s helmet over his face!
