While some museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are currently open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
The Australian painter Clarice Beckett (1887–1935) worked mainly at dawn and dusk, capturing misty Melbourne streets or the hushed coastline near her family home south of the city at Beaumaris. Alongside other painters of the Australian tonalist movement, Beckett achieved a degree of fame in her lifetime, but was largely forgotten after her death; this survey of 130 of her paintings, at the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide (27 February–16 May), is the largest to date.
