From the Author
I owe a great debt of gratitude to Clive and Mary Clark, Paraskeva Clark’s son and daughter-in-law, for giving so generously of their time, showing me works of art and other materials, and answering myriad questions. Panya Clark Espinal was also very helpful and offered valuable insights into her grandmother’s life and work.

 

My research was greatly facilitated by librarian Donald Rance (Art Gallery of Ontario), archivist Philip Dombowsky (National Gallery of Canada), and the staff of Library and Archives Canada. Many private collectors and curators across Canada sent me information or showed me works by Paraskeva Clark in their possession or under their care. I would especially like to acknowledge Gregory Humeniuk and Cindy Brouse (AGO), and Christopher Davidson and Jacqueline Warren (NGC). Christopher Varley helped connect me with collectors of Clark’s work. Writer Maria Lakman and her husband, Sergey Plotnikov, of Ottawa generously undertook some Russian translating for me. I am grateful to Professor Donna Orwin, FRSC, Chair of the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Toronto, for her advice about the transliteration of Russian names. 

 

I sincerely appreciate having been given the opportunity to research and write about Paraskeva Clark for the ACI by Sara Angel and Anna Hudson. I was extremely fortunate to work with first-rate editor Rosemary Shipton, who cheered me on my way. I am also grateful to executive editor Kendra Ward and image research associate Stephanie Burdzy for their invaluable contributions. Dominque Denis and Eve Renaud skillfully produced the French translation, and I congratulate Sam Tse and Simone Wharton for the very handsome design of this book.
