Charles Pachter is one of the most collected and cherished Canadian artists. 

His iconic, uplifting and patriotic images have independently earned their place in the nation's museums from coast to coast. 

While Pachter’s work shares some characteristics with Jim Dine, David Hockney and even Andy Warhol, his style is resoundingly charming, singular and uniquely Canadian.

Queen Elizabeth, barns, and the moose, form a trio of Canadiana icons that Pachter has repeatedly visited over the course of his career. 

In this image, we see the signature Canadian moose on a cliff’s ledge above waves clearly inspired by the famous (and much reproduced) Japanese work of art “The Great Wave” by Hokusai.

This work is a playful combination of a famous Canadian representation of nature (the moose) and a famous Japanese representation of nature (the wave). Both elements have emerged as representations of their country’s art and nature, and finally they meet at Charles’ hand.

Pachter’s graphics are an ideal choice for starting a collection of Canadian art.
