Published as part of the centenary celebrations of Sir Sidney Nolan’s birth, and to accompany the 2017 exhibition at Pallant House Gallery

Sidney Nolan (1917-1992) is one of the foremost international artists of the twentieth century. Born in Melbourne of Irish descent, he relocated to Britain permanently in 1953. Transferences: Sidney Nolan in Britain provide a long overdue account of Nolan’s life and work in Britain, and reinstates him as a significant figure in the post-war British art scene.

Published as part of the centenary celebrations of Sir Sidney Nolan’s birth, this fully-illustrated book includes new contributions from international scholars and contemporary artists. It explores Nolan’s critical reception in England; his diverse subject matter drawn from Australian history but fused with European myths, legends and poetry; his innovative set designs for ballet and opera; and his experimental use of materials and techniques, including computer generated collages created on the Quantel Paintbox. Through this extensive work , Nolan’s lifelong mission to be truly modern is revealed.
