Sidney Nolan is considered among Australia’s greatest artists. His legacy is entwined with myth - Ned Kelly haunting the Australian outback, Gallipoli, Burke and Wills - all told in inventive ways.

This work comes from an ambitious mural Nolan conceived between 1970 and 1972, now in the collection of Hobart’s Museum of Modern Art. Comprising 1,620 hand-drawn images of snakes - each contorting in its own way - Nolan was inspired by Aboriginal Dreaming, a mural in Beijing and the Australian desert in springtime.

Nolan is represented in every state gallery and internationally at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and London’s Tate. This work is sumptuous to the eye. It will enliven collections of Modern art.
