Hot on the trails of a new bi­og­ra­phy of the same ti­tle is ‘Mod­ern Love: The Lives of John & Sun­day Reed’, a Heide Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art ret­ro­spec­tive that cel­e­brates the shared lives of its founders, John and Sun­day Reed. Known for cham­pi­oning modernism and in­spir­ing Aus­tralian lit­er­a­ture, the ex­hi­bi­tion packs on the most re­veal­ing glimpse into the cou­ple’s life. From their first meet­ing in 1930 ( John was a so­lic­i­tor from an af­flu­ent Tas­ma­nian fam­ily, while Sun­day was an heiress to the Bail­lieu dy­nasty) to their joint bo­hemian ad­ven­ture, ev­ery piece in the col­lec­tion hints of the soul of their timestop­ping love. Un­til April 10 at the Heide Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art, Mel­bourne.

Por­trait of Sun­day Bail­lieu Quinn, Paris, 1939, Agnes Good­sir
