Sidney Nolan Untitled, House & Street c1960's
Sidney Nolan (1917–1992) is one of Australia's leading artists of the 20th century. Working in a wide variety of mediums, his oeuvre is among the most diverse and prolific in all of modern art. He is best known for his series of iconic paintings on legends from Australian history, most famously Ned Kelly the Bushranger and outlaw (see thumbnail photo).
Throughout his career Sidney Nolan experimented with non-traditional materials and application methods ranging from use of household paints to spray paint, acrylic inks, masking materials, marbling (using oil paint on water), solvent based inks, removing colour with masking tape, polyvinyl acetate and mono printing: many of these techniques can be seen here in the exciting expressionist signed work Untitled, House & Street. Nolan was one of the first artists of his generation to ultimately use non-artist’s paint and has probably used Ripolin (an enamel house paint) and polyvinyl acetate, for the work Untitled House & Street - creating the characteristic fluidity that is an important feature found in works by Sidney Nolan. Untitled, House & Street, is in pristine condition, resplendant with the Nolan colour palette and a rare gem by the artist! Please contact the Seller for further information.
