Sidney Nolan's home saved for future generations

Sir Sidney Nolan's home and 'Thinking Room' preserved for future generations

The Grade II* listed manor has been transferred to the Sidney Nolan trust with assistance from the Acceptance in Leiu (AIL) scheme.

Rodd Court sits at the heart of the Marches; the estate which house Nolan's studio and the Trust's exhibition space. The Trust will open Nolan's house to visitors for the very first time in the Summer of 2019 - realising Nolan's vision of an open space to inspire visitors from all backgrounds.

Sidney Nolan's studio was open to the public between May and September of this year, Nolan's last and only remaining studio in situ will now also close until the estate reopens in Summer 2019. The 'Thinking Room' is the study in Nolan's home where the artist purportedly conceived his future painting projects.

Nolan lived and worked on the estate for the best part of fifty years, initially working in the house itself and then moving out into the barn. The studio has remained completely untouched since his death in 1992 and is now a time capsule in which one can visit the great artist himself.
