Sidney Nolan – The trail

http://www.rugusavay.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Sidney_Nolan-the_trial.jpg

Sidney Nolan, one of the most famous Australian artists, uses a modern square technique. He used different materials for making his art like paper and canvas.

This painting shows the courthouse where Ned Kelly was sentenced to death by Judge Barry.

Ned Kelly tells the Judge that soon when he dies he will meet with the Judge.

Sadly two weeks later the Judge died.

The courthouse is in St Kilda. You can see the port through the window. The red and white floor was in a house where Sidney Nolan was once.

I like this painting because, it shows a very special moment of Australian’s history.
