Ned Kelly on the Move
Ned Kelly at the National Gallery of Australia
ned kelly A New Home for Ned Kelly
Sidney Nolan's great, iconic Ned Kelly paintings are among the first works that visitors will encounter when they visit the National Gallery of Australia. The recently opened, specially constructed oval space on the entry level is intended to display some of our most significant Australian works to best advantage and to make them easily accessible to local and international visitors alike. Highlighting these works makes the point that Australia art is part of the world, with its own stories to tell. This dual emphasis of connectedness and distinctiveness in relation to culture and place is integral to Nolan's Ned Kelly series.

In 1977, Sunday Reed donated 25 of the 26 paintings on display in the Kelly series to the National Gallery of Australia.
