CHARLES PACHTER

b. 1942


One of Canada’s leading contemporary artists, Charles Pachter is a painter, printmaker, sculptor, designer, historian, and lecturer. His iconic pop images of the queen, moose, and maple leaf flag celebrate Canada’s cultural heritage with wit and whimsy.

Pachter’s contributions to Canadian culture have been recognized with honorary doctorates from Brock University, OCAD University, the University of Toronto, and Lakehead University.

He is an Officer of the Order of Canada, a member of the Order of Ontario, a Chevalier of France’s Order of Arts and Letters and a recipient of the Queen’s Golden and Diamond Jubilee medals.

Pachter studied at the University of Toronto, the Sorbonne, and at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in the USA. His work has been exhibited at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the McMichael Gallery. He has held solo exhibitions in France, Germany, Japan, the UK, India, and Bangladesh. He is represented in public and private collections around the world.

The original drawings are of Lord John Graves Simcoe, first the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada and famed diarist Lady Elizabeth Posthuma Gwillim Simcoe. These two lithographs were produced in cooperation with the Art Gallery of Ontario in 1993, to mark the 200th Anniversary of the founding of the Town of York. The edition of 100 prints was signed in pencil by Pachter.
