Sunday Reed returned 284 other paintings and drawings to Nolan, but she refused to give up the 25 remaining Kellys, partly because she saw the works as fundamental to the proposed Heide Museum of Modern Art.[1] Eventually, she gave them to the National Gallery of Australia in 1977 and this resolved the dispute.
