Sidney Nolan produced many memorable paintings with mask-like heads as their central imagery, including the iconic Kelly series, 1945-47. The artist continued to paint works on the theme of the
head and in 1983 he completed the Remembrance of my youth series, consisting of these
14 remarkable works.
