This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Joachim George Gauthier RCA, OSA, CSPWC, ALCT (1897 - 1988)

A prominent Canadian painter, printmaker, draftsman, commercial artist, and illustrator, Joachim George Gauthier (AKA: Joachim Gauthier) was born in North Bay, Ontario, lived much of his life in Toronto, and died at his home in Minden, Ontario, a town about 100 miles north west of Toronto. He exhibited with the Group of Seven* and was a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts*; several museums collect his work, including the National Gallery of Canada.

His mediums included oils, acrylics, watercolors, gouache*, pastels, pencil, Conte Crayon*, charcoal, and serigraph*. His subjects included portraits, landscapes, villages, farms, snowscapes, the Rocky Mountains and advertising. Most of the painting locations were in Ontario and Quebec. His styles included Realism*, Fauvism*, Plein Air* and Impressionism*.

He was mainly self-taught. However in 1914 he apprenticed at Cliff Sign Company Tacoma, Washington and, while in the state is noted to have studied under Seattle sculptor and painter Alonzo Victor Lewis. In Toronto, Gauthier also studied under Group of Seven* members Franklin Carmichael and J.E.H. MacDonald, both of whom were co-workers at Sampson Matthews Ltd., and along with A.J. Casson (another Group of Seven member) were personal friends and Plein Air painting companions. (1)

Gauthier worked as a commercial artist at Tuckett Tobacco Company, Hamilton, Ontario from 1923 to 1927 and with Sampson Matthews Limited, Toronto from 1927 to 1961.

He was a member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour* (1931 - 1941); the Ontario Society of Artists* (1933); the Arts and Letters Club, Toronto (1935, 1936 and 1975 - 1982); and the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts* (Associate 1946, Academician 1974).

He exhibited frequently with the Ontario Society of Artists* (1928 - 1937, 1940 and 1957) and the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts* (1932, 1936, 1938, 1939, 1940, 1942, 1946, 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1955 and 1959). He also exhibited with the Group of Seven* in December 1931. The exhibition turned out to be the group's last before it disbanded in 1933. (2)

Gauthier's paintings are regularly traded on the Canadian auction market, they are in numerous private collections, and they are in several prominent Canadian museum collections. According to the Canadian Heritage Information Network* and individual museum websites, his works are in the permanent collections of the Art Gallery of Hamilton (Ontario), the Mackenzie Art Gallery (Regina, Saskatchewan), the McMichael Canadian Art Collection (Kleinburg, Ontario), the Owens Art Gallery (Sackville, N.B.), the Tom Thomson Memorial Art Gallery (Owen Sound, Ontario), and the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa).
