Large Vintage Sidney Nolan Ned Kelly Death of Constable Scanlon, 1946 Framed Picture Print
This measures 33" x 39" Frame needs touch up in some areas.
The sequence of the Kelly works is not fixed, but in the order given by art historian Andrew Sayers: Death of Constable Scanlon is the first schism or major point of action in the series. While searching for the Kelly gang, Constable Scanlon was shot dead. In Nolan’s portrayal, Scanlon’s body is thrown wildly into the air while his horse is also rattled. Kelly, meanwhile, is subdued. His eyes are dark and downcast and his body is pitch black and condensed. Overhead, grey and black skies ominously overtake the blue.
