Abstract:

Paraskeva Clark, artist, socialist, feminist, is her own woman at her own cost. This film is a cameo of an irascible and often times touching artist whose work has won her a place in exhibitions and private collections. Born in Russia in 1898, she emigrated to Canada in the 1930s. Because her canvasses reflect a strong social and political conscience, she had to struggle hard to earn a place in the nation's conservative galleries. (Awards: Montreal; Melbourne.).
