Lot Essay

Nolan first encountered the story of Mrs Fraser and the escaped convict, David Bracefell, in 1947, producing a body of work around this narrative. He revisited the subject in England in 1957, and again in America the following year when he moved to New York on a two year Commonwealth Fund Harkness Fellowship.
