Kelly: ‘Had he been my own brother I could not help shooting. I put his cloak over him and left him as honourable as I could.’ Historical record

Matters are not separated here. They are forced right against the eye, terror and evil so close that no one is seen as a whole; everyone is cut off in both senses of the word. Kelly is cool and natural…. No compassion; the natural thing to do. Sidney Nolan Text © National Gallery of Australia, Canberra 2010
