Bessie Davidson was an Australian artist who moved to Paris to pursue art in the early 20th century. Explore her ‘modern French impressionist’ style of painting – with light-filled domestic interiors, landscapes and women at leisure – displayed in the gallery, and viewable online; alongside works by her great-niece, Sally Smart. Interviews with the contemporary artist, curator Tansy Curtin and exhibition essays are also accessible, with an excerpt from Smart’s new film installation that draws on Davidson’s relationship with artist and friend, Margaret Preston.
