Canada’s national flag fills the frame of this magnificent painting by contemporary artist Charles Pachter. As a strong patriot, Pachter has chosen to celebrate the iconic image of the bold red and white maple leaf in his work again and again.“My favourite Pachter work is his variations on the Canadian flag. If Monet can paint 250 versions of Water Lilies there’s no reason why Charles can’t do 100 different takes on a flag.” Leonard Wise, CriticA painter, printmaker, sculptor, designer and author, Pachter is a graduate of the University of Toronto and the Sorbonne-Paris.
