Heffel Auction House Biography and Notes

Charles Pachter's aesthetic persona is eloquently summed up by Bogomila Welsh-Ovcharov, the author of the monograph devoted to the first 30 years of his career: "With continuing grand gestures infrequently seen in the often skeptical Canadian art world, he has staked out cultural territory of his own and celebrated it unabashedly. Much of his work is an apparent contradiction, for he is a serious-minded humourist...he possesses the gift to be poignant and roguish at once." Published in 1992, that statement still provides an apt introduction to Pachter's images, so many of which - like his 1972 painting, Noblesse Oblige: Queen on Moose - have endured as iconic symbols of the culture and personality of Canada. In this more recent take on two of Canada's symbols of majesty, Pachter's image invites us to imagine a warm greeting between a citizen-beast and a smiling Queen, both sporting their finest headgear, set against a reminder of this country's cold northern landscape.
