Sir Sidney Robert Nolan OM, AC, CBE (; 22 April 1917 – 28 November 1992) was one of Australia’s leading artists of the 20th century. Working in a broad variety of mediums, his oeuvre is in the middle of the most diverse and prolific in anything of unprejudiced art. He is best known for his series of paintings upon legends from Australian history, most famously Ned Kelly, the bushranger and outlaw. Nolan’s stylised depiction of Kelly’s armour has become an icon of Australian art.
