The present moment: The art of Clarice Beckett
Admired for her distinctive ethereal paintings of incidental scenes The present moment: The art of Clarice Beckett sheds new light on the artist’s spiritual impulses. It provides the reader with an outline of the international 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 lavish colour reproductions reveal to the reader 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.
Published by the Art Gallery of South Australia to coincide with the exhibition Clarice Beckett: The present moment, 27 February - 23 May 2021.
