Beckett was renowned for her innovative compositions, her remarkable poetic lyricism and the dramatic intensity she was able to create. She was able to find ample subject matter for her distinctive paintings from the everyday world around her, such as here where the depiction of the trees and telegraph poles are more distinct than the shadowy figure by the road or on horseback. Beckett’s use of soft dissolving edges, a difficult technical feat employed to create atmosphere, is characteristic of her modernist style. Beckett's modernism lies in her minimalist aesthetic and her ability to arouse an emotional response with her images.
