To give a sincere and truthful representation of a portion of the beauty of Nature, and to show the charm of light and shade, which I try to give forth in correct tones so as to give as nearly as possible an exact illusion of reality.
Clarice Beckett, 1924
Clarice Beckett (1887-1935) was a key member of the Australian tonalist movement. She is known for her subtle, misty landscapes of Melbourne and its suburbs, and her evocative paintings offer a view of Australia that celebrates modernity and the quiet beauty of the city and its suburbs. Her work was challenging for its time, and Beckett's story as an artist who never compromised her unique vision and who continued to paint 'against the odds', is compelling and inspirational while also being moving and poignant. Beckett developed a personal style that contributed to the development of modernism in Australia.
