Paraskeva Clark Life & Work by Christine Boyanoski

Soon after she settled in Toronto, Paraskeva Clark began to exhibit portraits, landscapes, and still lifes in oil and watercolours. She was immediately recognized as a European-trained modern artist to watch. In the later 1930s and 1940s, she focused on making art with a social purpose—and she is best known today for these paintings. The breadth of her work is remarkable, as is her passionate engagement with life around her.
