Rate this:
This in-depth look at the professional and private life of Alexandra Luke (a.k.a. Margaret McLaughlin) explores the tensions between Luke's multiple selves. As Margaret McLaughlin, she played the role of a married, society woman living in Ontario in the 1940s and 50s; but as Alexandra Luke, she broke into the male-dominated world of art, establishing Painters Eleven (the first abstract painting group in English Canada). Aided by commentaries from Luke's friends, relatives, and acquaintances, Margaret Rodgers unravels the ideological, sociohistorical, and intertextual threads of Alexandra Luke's life.
