         The ‘Rebellious Generation’

  “The members of the rebellious generation –
  Noel Counihan, Albert Tucker, Sidney Nolan,
  Max Harris, John Reed and Bernard Smith –
created a movement of revolt more volatile than
       anything hitherto seen in Australia.

They were revolutionaries … struggling to come
 to terms with the modern world and its history.
With much in common, they were also divided in
 their view on the nature of society, nature and
culture, and of the art that could give expression
       to authentic Australian experience.”
