Vis­ual art: The Sid­ney Nolan ret­ro­spec­tive is a missed op­por­tu­nity: it could have toured his crown­ing achieve­ment, the 1946- 47 Ned Kelly paint­ings, writes Se­bas­tian Smee. Nolan di­luted the mys­tery of his art through rep­e­ti­tion and blowsy ex­e­cu­tion but, care­fully fil­tered, his body of work is as hal­lu­ci­na­tory and vo­ra­cious as a bush­fire. Art Gallery of NSW, un­til Fe­bru­ary 3.
