Charles Pachter

Canada's Artist

Published June 2017


An Officer of the Order of Canada, Chevalier of France’s Order of Arts and Letters, and recipient of the Order of Ontario, painter, printmaker, sculptor, designer, and author, Charles Pachter is one of Canada’s best-loved and most celebrated artists.

Pachter is an artist with an astonishing range. His work is witty, thoughtful, moving, and personal. Many works, like Queen on Moose, The Painted Flag, and Hockey Knights in Canada, have achieved a remarkable level of recognition, becoming famous across the country — indeed, around the world. His collaboration with Margaret Atwood on The Journals of Susanna Moodie has been called “truly the most magnificent book ever to be published in Canada.”

Charles Pachter: Canada’s Artist is a celebration of the life and work — the struggles and triumphs — of a man who has helped to redefine Canadian art. Pachter’s promotion of Canada and its culture has left a lasting legacy — one that he continues to build on.
