Yves Gaucher (1934–2000) was one of Canada’s foremost abstract painters of the second half of the twentieth century. He first made his mark as an innovative printmaker, winning international prizes for his work. After turning to painting in 1964 and for the rest of his life, he pursued his abstract style with relentless self-criticism and uncommon purity.
