Sidney Nolan: A Life


Nancy Underhill charts the life and work of Sidney Nolan, peeling back the layers from a complicated artistic genius.

Trace Nolan's story, from his birth in 1917, through his early life, his experience as a commercial artist, involvement in the Angry Penguins magazine, painting and set design, difficult marriages and the important friendships he shared with some of the twentieth century's most famous figures: Patrick White, Albert Tucker, Benjamin Britten, Robert Lowell, Stephen Spender and Kenneth Clark.
