  • Christiane Pflug (June 20, 1936 – April 1972) was a German-born Canadian painter and draughtswoman. During her short lifetime Pflug established a successful career in Canada. She held a teaching position at the Ontario Art College (now OCAD) in Toronto, as one of four women to teach there during the 1960s as well as considerable attention from galleries, collectors and critics with retrospective at the Winnipeg Art Gallery (1966), Hart House (1969) and the Sarnia Art Gallery (1971). In 1967 and 1968 she received support from Canada Art Council. Today her paintings hang in National Gallery of Canada (NGC) and the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). Pflug was praised for her rendering of Magic Realism in an excerpt from the Toronto Star newspaper (11 June 1969) that remarked, “[t]ime is distorted in her paintings. They’re worked on six hours a day for about nine months, and so the season’s change- but the artist simply incorporates this change into her paintings. The foliage will be [blowing] and dying in different parts of the same painting; or the view outside will be winter, while the reflection on the glass door will be summer” Furthermore, Pflug's life and career have influenced several biographies, including Ann Davis', Somewhere Waiting: The life and art of Christiane Pflug(1990) and Christine Colney's, Daughter in Exile: The Painting Space of Christiane Pflug (1998).
