Charles Pachter
Margaret Atwood Portrait: It Was Fascination I Know

1968

$9,500

About

A portrait of Margaret Atwood, one of Canada's most extraordinary writers, and author of The Handmaid's Tale and The Testaments. Created by one of Canada’s leading contemporary artists, Charles Pachter is a painter, printmaker, sculptor, designer, historian, and lecturer. He was born in Toronto and holds degrees from the University of Toronto, the Sorbonne, and the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He holds honorary doctorates from Brock University, the Ontario College of Art & Design, and the University of Toronto. 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 hang in public and private collections around the world. Those of the Queen, moose, and maple leaf flag are pop icons of Canadian art. His flag paintings hang in the Toronto Stock Exchange, in the Canadian Embassy in Washington, and in the Parliament buildings in Ottawa. Pachter’s murals of Hockey Knights in Canada highlight a Toronto subway station. Retrospective exhibitions of his work have toured France, Germany, Japan, and India. His McClelland & Stewart publications include an illustrated biography, and The Journals of Susanna Moodie, a celebrated collaboration with poet Margaret Atwood. His two children’s books, M is for Moose, and Canada Counts, published by Cormorant Books, are Canadian best sellers. This particular work celebrates his long collaboration and friendship with author Margaret Atwood. One of the earliest portraits he painted of her, this serigraph was produced in an edition of 10 - this is 5/10. Pachter lives and works beside historic Grange Park in downtown Toronto in a residence designed by award winning Canadian architect Stephen Teeple. His work is on permanent display at his adjoining Moose Factory Gallery. In summer, he paints in a waterfront studio converted from a former ice storage depot on Lake Simcoe.
