     Gordon E. Pfeiffer (1899-1983):

Gordon Edward Pfeiffer (October 10, 1899 – May 25, 1983) was a Canadian master dyer and painter.

Gordon Edward Pfeiffer was born in Quebec City in 1899. He was the child of Adolph Pfeiffer and Lily Wright. He attended Misses Bonhams' school, the Boys High School, Stanstead Wesleyan College and studied chemistry and economics at Harvard for two summers.

Pfeiffer married Dorothy Pfeiffer (née Douglas Young), a musician and former art critic for the Montreal Gazette, in June 1925 after a short courtship. It is unclear how many children Pfeiffer had, in Aimers's biography it is mentioned "Pfeiffer now had a family of six to support" with Gordon Jr., Douglas, Helen and Bruce being named in the book.

Notable patrons

Cotton Aimers' bibliography and catalogue raisonné Gordon E. Pfeiffer in collaboration with the painter himself documents a rich source of art dealers and patrons that have supported Pfeiffer throughout his career.

Corinne "Coco" Dupuis-Maillet

Dupuis-Maillet is described as a fellow-artist that helped Pfeiffer break into the Montreal artistic community as he moved to Westmount in the mid-Forties. She would take him under her wings and purchase dozens of his paintings and make the introductions he needed to get noticed.
