About “Tour de Force II”
“I have continuously explored the Canadian identity through my iconic pop symbol of the moose for 40 years. Tour de Force is one of my best-loved images of a moose walking on a tightrope over the CN Tower.
The original painting is huge, 54 x 78 in. This print is based on the original painting,” Pachter says.
