Biography Michael (Dr.) Pflug
Dr. Michael Pflug M.D. (1929)
A Canadian doctor, painter, draftsman and philanthropist, Dr. Michael Pflug was born in Kassel, Germany and has lived in Toronto, Ontario since 1960. His works are in a few museums and he has exhibited at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts; but, he is probably best known as the husband of Christiane Pflug (m. 1957 – 1972) an important Canadian artist and a cult figure. His controversial role in her career, her life and possibly her death has been portrayed as that of a Svengali or Pygmalion; his influence on her, to one degree or another, is discussed in most of her biographies. Since her death in 1972, he has donated dozens of her paintings, sketches and drawings to major museums across Canada. (1)
