Sidney Nolan: The Greek Series Postcard
15cm x 21cm postcard from the exhibtion Sidney Nolan: The Greek Series.
This exhibition was a tribute to one of Australia’s most beloved artists on the centenary of his birth, and was made possible with the generous support of the Sidney Nolan Trust.
In November 1955, two years after leaving Sydney, and hungry for inspiration after finishing the two iconic series, Ned Kelly and Burke and Wills, Sidney Nolan and his wife, writer Cynthia Reed, travelled from London to the Greek island of Hydra. Immersing himself in the timeless beauty of the Greek landscape and culture, Nolan started a new series of works exploring both the contemporary and mythological world.
