Appreciation Friday: Artist Sidney Nolan

Things I'm learning about him:

3. He was torn between being an artist or a poet

Nolan was obsessed with the works of French poet Jean Nicolas Arthur Rimbaud. But thank god he followed his visual artistic pursuits, otherwise we wouldn’t have his amazing Australian paintings to boast about, like this one:

4. He was passionate about all things French

Whether it was poetry or paintings, Nolan revelled in French arts. He drew inspiration from 19th-century painter Henri Rousseau. He also loved Picasso and Cézanne. And in 1957, he studied engraving and lithography at Atelier 17 in Paris.
