Biography

James MacDonald is/was a significant Ontarian .

In the 58 years since I first met him, my admiration and respect for this gentle, sincere man and his work has steadily increased. He was the complete artist in everything he did, never doing anything shoddy because of insufficient time or payment. He had a high standard and maintained it in everything. As much effort went into the Christmas decorations for the Arts and Letters Club as he would expend for an important painting.
-- A.J. Casson in The Tangled Garden: The Art of J.E.H. MacDonald[1]

The painter J.E.H. MacDonald was a founding member of the Group of Seven.[2]
