About the artwork
About the artist
About the artwork
In 1952 the Courier Mail, Brisbane, commissioned Nolan to record the devastation caused by the drought in Queensland and the Northern Territory. Nolan took photographs and made drawings of the thousands of dehydrated animal carcasses he found strewn across the landscape, twisted by the dangerous heat. He later used these drawings and pictures to create paintings such as this one – a giant petrified cow carcass dominates the scorched landscape.
