After the fateful siege at Glenrowan when what seemed like every policemen in Australia had converged there to bring about his end, Ned Kelly still triumphed. Unyielding in capture and unrepentant at trial, he faced the gallows knowing that his journey... his fight... his death would inspire those who came after him. “Such is life,” his fateful last words, have echoed through the centuries as a clarion call to like-minded men to search for their own truth... and to never give up. 140 years after Kelly’s epic battle, his struggle has been recalled in a magnificent new Gallery Editions print of supreme quality and impeccable artistic bearing. For those who share the struggle to be heard, for every man who has suffered injustice in his life, the “Ned Kelly’s Last Stand Gallery Editions Print” is must-have tribute that gives your personal truth powerful new expression through moving, unapologetic art exclusive to The Bradford Exchange.

One of Australia’s finest portraitists, Michael Wilkin’s reputation has been made for creating art that transcends the mere visual. In his vignette studies of Kelly’s life, the one unifying force is his presentation of Kelly as a man hounded by the corruption around him. The print presents those moments in densely textured art hued in dramatically muted tones. The dark, enveloping colours of the northern Victorian landscape in which Kelly’s story unfolded is a cold, unsparing world, bearing down on Kelly as much as the pursuing constabulary. Through it all ,Kelly remains resolute. Wilkin’s portrayal of Kelly illuminates the darkness as if lighting the way through Kelly’s own truth. From the Kelly Gang charging our of the bush in brotherhood, to incendiary brightness of Glenrowan’s burning, to the armoured warrior aim straight and true for justice, Kelly remains a motivating force, unyielding to the powers that would destroy him.

Below the art, three niches continue Kelly’s final days in a fascinating detail. Events of the siege at Glenrowan confirm Kelly’s reputation and the fear he instilled in the police, likening his armoured visage as a “strange apparition.” Felled by a hail of bullets, Kelly’s final moments of freedom come vividly to life. Most potently, his trial in which he knew there could be only one verdict, takes on a sinister turn. As the judge offers “May God have mercy on your soul,” an unrepentant Kelly replies... “I will see you there when I go.” These words take on new meaning accented by two golden proof-quality coins adorned with more of Michael Wlikn’s stirring art. Values at $159.98, they are included at no additional charge to complete the story of Kelly final days before death and legend transformed him into a folk hero.

Triple-layer matting hued in a tri-colour block of midnight blue, burgundy and forest green uplift the art, which is presented on archival quality paper stock. Singularly impressive at 58cm wide x 58cm high, the print is presented in a classic hardwood frame, with its impressive inclusions protected by a clear viewing pane so that future generations can enjoy the Last Stand of the first true Aussie battler.
