Sidney Nolan: The Ned Kelly Story
Sayers, Andrew, with a foreword by William S. Lieberman (1994)
This title is out of print.

The Ned Kelly story was painted in 1946–47 by Sidney Nolan, the most famous of all Australian artists. Nolan's cycle of twenty-seven paintings depicts the exploits of Australia's legendary Victorian-era outlaw, Ned Kelly, and his gang. An essay by Andrew Sayers, curator at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, discusses Nolan's debt to the art of Henri Rousseau and his involvement with both the Australian landscape and the myths surrounding Kelly.
