1998

$30,000

About

Stylized, elegant, and stripped down depiction of a red barn in a farmer's field; the work speaks to the essence of the idea. Near the shore of a lake or pond, the barn's image is reflected in the water's surface. Framed size: 25 x 31 inches. Pachter has created a number of iconic images that he returns to over and over again. The moose, the Canadian flag, the Queen, and of course, the red barn. The color shifts are subtle, the image compelling. Often referred to as Canada's Warhol, painter, print maker, sculptor, designer, historian, and author Charles Pachter is a leading contemporary Canadian artist. Pachter is an Officer of the Order of Canada, a Chevalier of France’s Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and a recipient of the Queen’s Jubilee medal. His paintings are in public and private collections around the world. Those of the Queen, moose, and maple leaf flag are pop icons of Canadian art. His work is in major public collections in Canada, the UK and the US.

About the Artist

Charles Pachter

One of Canada’s leading contemporary artists, Charles Pachter is a painter, printmaker, sculptor, designer, historian, and lecturer. His work is pursued by significant private and public collections.

Born in Toronto, Pachter studied art history at the University of Toronto, French literature at the Sorbonne and painting and graphics at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. His work has been exhibited at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the McMichael Gallery. Pachter is represented in public and private collections throughout Canada, and internationally. He has held solo exhibitions in France, Germany, Japan, the UK, and India.

Pachter worked at Expo 67 in Montreal supervising the installation of 60 contemporary sculptures from around the world. He taught printmaking at the University of Calgary in 1969–70. He spearheaded Toronto’s Queen Street West revival in the 1970s and ‘80s by restoring 20 old buildings into facilities for arts usage.

Pachter is an Officer of the Order of Canada, a Chevalier of France’s Order of Arts and Letters, a member of the Order of Ontario and holds honorary doctorates from Brock University, OCAD University and the University of Toronto, where he is a Senior Fellow at Massey College. He is a recipient of the Queen’s Golden and Diamond Jubilee medals. While often referred to as “Canada's Warhol,” he has his own unique voice.

Pachter’s paintings are in the Portrait Gallery of Canada, the Canadian Embassy in Washington, Canada House in London, the Parliament Buildings, the Prime Minister’s residence, the Governor General's home and the Embassy of France in Ottawa.
