J. E. H. MacDonald

With little formal art training, J. E. H. MacDonald (Canadian, b. England, 1873–1932) began a career in graphic design at age 16, eventually working for the leading Toronto design firm, Grip Limited. In 1911, he became a freelance designer to devote more time to painting. MacDonald, Lawren S. Harris, and a handful of other Canadian artists came to be known as the Group of Seven, likeminded painters who captured Canada’s rugged wilderness in a distinctive style. Among MacDonald’s most accomplished works are landscapes of the wild and scenic Algoma region of Ontario. He continued to work as a fine artist, graphic artist, and head of the Ontario College of Art (now OCAD University) until he died in 1932.
