Charles Pachter



Born in Toronto (1942), Charles Pachter is one of the most collected and cherished Canadian artists. In both style and content, Pachter’s uplifting images share characteristics with other Pop Art leaders including Jim Dine and David Hockney, yet his voice is resoundingly singular and uniquely Canadian.

The barn, along with Queen Elizabeth and the Moose, forms a triad of icons that Pachter has repeatedly visited over the course of his career. Pachter's Barn paintings perfectly capture his graphic style, displaying a quintessential Canadian landscape that is recognizable and familiar around the world. 

"Oro Barn" (1999) is a particularly fine example from the series. Here the artist presents his beloved icon with a bold colour scheme and flattening depth. The contrast between the simplicity of the barn with the gestural, almost expressionist or painterly sky makes this a notable and impactful example.

Charles Pachter is represented in both public and private collections across Canada and internationally.  He has exhibited widely throughout Canada including the Art Gallery of Ontario, The Portrait Gallery of Canada, The Royal Ontario Museum, and the McMichael Gallery. Pachter’s works are widely sought after and are an ideal selection for starting or continuing a collection of Canadian art.
