Sidney Nolan's Antartica now acquired

This Art Gallery of South Australia Sidney Nolan Antarctica Appeal has recently been successfully completed and Sir Sidney Nolan’s striking work, Antarctica, will now formally enter the Art Gallery of South Australia’s permanent collection.

Capturing a sense of unbridled oceanic mystery, Antarctica whispers to history's past dramas and cries out to the fragility of our future. The compressed energy of the swirling and frentic brushstrokes alludes to the anxiety of a world 'on thin ice' and points to an international landscape tradition that speaks beyond borders to universal concerns.
