CHARLES PACHTER "SIMCOE'S ILLUSION" GICLEE PRINT
Charles Pachter’s graphic and confident artworks have confirmed his position in the canon of 20th century Canadian art.
Pachter’s most cherished images take archetypes of Canadiana and reinterpret them with an original palette (and often through a humorous lens).
Pachter’s amazing portrait of John Graves Simcoe (1752-1806) pays homage to the first Lt. Governor of Upper Canada.
Simcoe founded Toronto, helped establish the city’s first court system but most significantly abolished slavery decades before the British Empire and the Americans even considered it.
Pachter has created many works related to the war of 1812 and Canada's early years.
"Simcoe's Illusion" is one of the most iconic and cherished works from this body of work.
Note: The edition is nearly sold out. One framed example and one unframed remain.
Additional images available on request.
