Sidney Nolan (1917-1992) Burke and Camel, 1964 signed lower right: 'Nolan'; signed, dated and inscribed verso: 'Nolan / Burke / + Wills / 4 Aug 1964' ripolin enamel on composition board 74.0 x 66.5cm (29 1/8 x 26 3/16in). Footnotes PROVENANCE Lord Mc Alpine of West Green, United Kingdom Private collection, Perth Lister Calder Gallery, Perth Gould Galleries, Sydney Private collection, United Kingdom EXHIBITED Sidney Nolan: Landscapes and Legends, Gould Galleries, Melbourne, 7 March – 15 April 2001; Gould Galleries, Sydney, 2 May – 3 June 2001, cat. 26 (illus. in exhibition catalogue) In 1860 Robert O'Hara Burke and William John Wills along with 17 comrades set out from Melbourne with the ambitious task of crossing the continent from the south, to the Gulf of Carpentaria in the north. The expedition captured the public's imagination to the extent that 15,000 spectators attended the party's departure from Royal Park in Melbourne including notable artist Nicholas Chevalier who recorded the grand occasion. Doomed from the outset, the fateful expedition ingrained itself into Australian folklore with numerous posthumously recorded writings and paintings devoted to it. In a similar vein to Sidney Nolan's fascination with the infamous outlaw Ned Kelly and subsequently his symbolism as an Australian national icon - the legend of Burke and Wills' voyage captured Nolan's imagination. Between June and September 1949 Nolan travelled to Central Australia, the Northern Territory, Western Australia and South Australia with his new wife Cynthia, née Reed, and their daughter Jinx. The journey, which took three months, became the stimulus for a series of Central Australian landscapes as well as playing a pivotal part for the slightly later group of works depicting the ill-fated Burke and Wills expedition and their epic struggle for survival in the outback. In a letter to his friend, the poet and writer, Geoffrey Dutton, Nolan who was also known to have read the explorers diaries noted: 'I doubt that I will ever forget my emotions when first flying over Central Australia, and realizing how much we painters and poets owe to our predecessors the explorers, with their frail bodies and superb will-power.'1 Burke and Camel is a compelling portrayal of bravery and determination. Here Nolan presents Burke stripped bare to accentuate his vulnerability consumed within the unforgiving landscape, whilst it appears to reference a scene from William Wills' journal, dated 28th April 1861: 'Our stage was, however, very short, for about a mile one of the camels (Landa) got bogged by the side of a waterhole, and although we tried every means in our power, we found it impossible to get him out. All the ground beneath the surface was a bottomless quicksand, through which the beast sank too rapidly.' 1.
