To accompany the exhibition Sidney Nolan: Myth Rider, TarraWarra Museum of Art has published a major new 152-page hardback publication which is richly illustrated with many of the works featured in the exhibition and includes a Director’s foreword, a comprehensive exhibition checklist, and three original new essays. 

The curatorial essay by Anthony Fitzpatrick explores the creative processes by which Nolan melded classical allusions, literary sources, historical references, and his own personal experience of war, to convey a series of powerful insights into the broader dimensions of human conflict through his paintings; ‘Fighting Words: Nolan and Poetry’, a new essay by David Hansen (Associate Professor at the Centre for Art History and Art Theory at the Australian National University) which offers a series of fresh new insights into the centrality of poetry in Nolan’s artistic practice; and ‘Sidney Nolan’s “Disasters of War”’, an essay by Sarah Midford (Senior Lecturer in Classics and Ancient History at La Trobe University) in which she reveals the contemporary relevance of Nolan’s depiction of the savagery and exploitation of human conflict, with particular attention drawn to the vulnerability of women in war.
