Clarice Beckett was an Australian Tonalist painter of the late 19th and early 20th Century, born in Castleton, Victoria in 1887. She went to study in Melbourne, with Max Meldrum, who was the first Australian Tonalist artist and whose theories Beckett followed.
Australian Tonalism as described by Meldrum was a misty representation of shapes and impressions, and very much the opposite of Post-Impressionism and Modernism where colors were much brighter and more vivid.
Beckett’s paintings are held mainly in Australia in the National Gallery of Australia as well as in many State and regional galleries. Famous Clarice Beckett paintings are Passing Trams 1931, and Evening Scene, which hints at Monet’s Impression, Sunrise.
