“Nolan has always been fascinated by elephants.  They appear in several African Journey oil paintings and works on paper: huge, gentle silhouettes which can move so quietly. Nolan’s creatures are camouflaged in their landscape; dissolved and integrated into the whole surface of the painting.” Refer Sidney Nolan: Landscapes and Legends, Jane Clark, National Gallery of Victoria, 1987, page 144
