The video includes a segment of an ABC television program on an
exhibition of paintings with a Gallipoli theme by Sidney Nolan. In the
video, Nolan's paintings are interspersed with movie footage from Gallipoli
and of Sidney Nolan himself. Watch the video.
All images are taken from the ABC's "Art Nation -
Sidney Nolan's Gallipoli".
In the video, Sidney Nolan says he found inspiration by reading
poems by Anzac soldiers in THE ANZAC BOOK. You can find
reproduced pages of this book through our Early books page.
