CHARLES PACHTER "UNTITLED PORTRAIT" CIRCA 1985
The power of a beautiful portrait can transcend any era, and captivate a viewer in another place or generation.
In the early 1980's Charles Pachter did numerous portrait drawings of cultural luminaries in Toronto, such as filmmaker David Cronenberg, painter Joanne Tod and architect Carlos Ott.
Occasionally Pachter would draw or paint the children or lovers of his friends. This mysterious, unidentified portrait is a perfect example of both the genre and Pachter's mastery of capturing a character.
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.
