Charles Pachter


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

His iconic, uplifting, and distinctively Canadian works have earned their place in the nation's museums. 

Pachter has also been commissioned to do many iconic public artworks notably the famed Maple Leafs / Montreal Canadians mural in Toronto's College Street subway station.

For over half a century Pachter has depicted the personalities and places that define Canada.

In contrast to his playful depictions of Queen Elizabeth, in 2011 Pachter began a body of work depicting the key figures and emblems of the War of 1812 in anticipation of the Bicentennial. 

This pair of canvases represents two soldiers’ uniforms. The British "Loyalist" army was a hodgepodge of soldiers imported from across the UK, local militia, native Indians and French Canadians - a fragile amalgam united in fending off the Yanks.

In these works, we see many of the aesthetic characteristics Pachter shares with Hockney, Warhol and Jim Dine. Yet the gravitas of his subject matter is unrivaled and uniquely Canadian. 

Pachter's work can be found in numerous public and corporate collections including the AGO, the Musée d'art Contemporain de Montréal, Harvard and McGill Universities, the Portrait Gallery of Canada, Coca Cola, CIBC and Canada Trust to mention a few. 
Note: These paintings are sold presented as a diptych. Sold individually for $15,000
