The Artist -
Clarice Beckett (1887-1935) was an Australian Tonalist painter whose lyrical and evocative work celebrated modernity, and the quiet beauty of the city and suburbs. Her work was challenging for its time, and Beckett’s story as an artist who never compromised her unique vision and someone who continued to paint ‘against the odds’ is compelling and inspirational while also being moving and poignant. Following her death in 1935 at the age of 48, Beckett’s work, which had achieved some measure of success during her lifetime, was all but forgotten. It was not until the 1970s, when a large group of works abandoned in a hay shed in rural Victoria were found and subsequently mounted in an exhibition, that her contribution began to be reappraised.
