Despite the fact that this historical grounding accompanied the paintings when they were first exhibited, the series was not intended as a literal illustration of the story. Originally, too, some of the paintings were reflections of a world of violence although Nolan remarked that after a number of decades the paintings did not look particularly violent any more.
The series weaves biography and autobiography together, but we can only guess at the details of the autobiographical dimension. The narrative is strongly present, beginning with a scene—setting painting which shows an empty landscape lit by an eerie light from the horizon. The paintings take us through the main events of the story of Ned Kelly and his gang — the shooting of police constables at Stringybark Creek, the ensuing police chase, the activities of the police spy Aaron Sherrit, the siege of the hotel at Glenrowan and the trial which ended in a sentence of hanging for Ned Kelly.

Ned Kelly: The outlaw who divides a nation
His hair colour was also distorted and you got exactly the same effect with the Aaron Sherritt photo — Aaron had very dark hair and yet, in the reproduced photo, it looked almost fair. It was in a wallet with pictures of Joe Byrne, Steve Hart and some others. This was the only photograph of Ned Kelly in the wallet. So there was pretty impressive evidence that it was the genuine article. This photo falls into the period where he still had a big beard, which he grew again over the next two years and into his outlawry, and then trimmed back quite considerably again before Glenrowan.
As a younger man, Ned parted his hair on the left — you can see it in the portrait taken at Kyneton when he was 15 and you can see it in the Boxing Ned photo when he was His hair tended to fall over the right side of his forehead, exactly how the hair falls on this photo taken at Beechworth.
