I am searching for a woman called Rosalind Hollinrake.
If it weren't for her, the memory of Clarice Beckett would have faded completely.
Many years after Beckett's death, Hollinrake discovered some paintings, signed 'C. Beckett', and set off to discover who this mysterious painter was. Eventually her search led her to a farm in Victoria, where to her horror she discovered, in an open-sided barn, rows and rows of Beckett paintings, 1200 in all, and most of them completely destroyed by the elements.
The farm was owned by an old lady, living on her own-- Becketts' sister.
Eventually Hollinrake gathered together the surviving paintings from private collections, and mounted several exhibitions, bringing to public consciousness the criminally-neglected work of a genius.
So I really want to try and find Rosalind Hollinrake, maybe to write to her or something. I have looked all over the internet but can't find an address or number anywhere--but I'll keep looking.
