Clarice Beckett: The Present Moment


Tracey Lock

ISBN 9781921668463

Admired for her distinctive paintings of everyday scenes in the fog and rain this new title on Clarice Beckett sheds light on the artist’s ethereal images and spiritual impulses, including an outline of the cultural trends that inspired her practice and shaped her visions of nature. Now regarded as one of Australia’s most important and influential modernist painters, its richly detailed analysis and colour reproductions reveal previously hidden dimensions of her life and art. Associated with a legendary story of neglect and rediscovery this book celebrates her as a visionary mystic.
