Additional Information

Nolan and the author Alan Moorehead travelled to Antarctica in January 1964. Nolan took 200 blank postcards to record his impressions of the landscape over the eight day trip in watercolours, which he used to paint works such as this one in the 18 months following. He was captivated by the colours of the landscape, describing them as ‘black, ochre, dark green, and blue, with an oyster-coloured sky and an indigo sea. The colours appear as if under intense moonlight’.
