The Artist: One of the founding members of the Group of Seven (1920), J.E.H. MacDonald (1873-1932) was born in Durham, England, and emigrated to Canada in 1887 with his English mother and Canadian father. He studied at the Hamilton Art School and the Central Ontario School of Art and Design, in Toronto. MacDonald worked at Grip Ltd. from 1895 to 1911, with a number of other artists who would also join the group. One of his colleagues, Lawren Harris, persuaded him to start painting full time, and he travelled and painted with members of the group. In 1922, MacDonald accepted a full-time teaching position at the Ontario College of Art. Starting in 1924 he spent summers painting in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. From 1928 until his death at 59 years of age, MacDonald served as the Principal of the Ontario College of Art.
