Briansky’s words, and Scott’s images combine to tell an artists’s compelling story. Beginning with Rita Briansky’s journey to Canada from Poland in 1929 at the age of 2, the tale unfolds with a humour and pathos that characterizes Briansky’s approach to life. Her saga is full of personal details that paint a portrait of a unique era from the rare point of view of a female artist. The book also includes four images from Briansky's Kaddish Series paintings.
