MacDonald James Edward Hervey (J. E. H. MacDonald, may 12, 1873, Durham, United Kingdom-November 26, 1932, Toronto) — the largest canadian artist, a member of the "Group of Seven", one of the founders of the national canadian painting.
Born in England, he moved with his family to Hamilton, Canada, in 1887 at the age of 14, and to Toronto in 1889. There, MacDonald studied design (commercial art), and also became an activist for the Toronto Art Student League.
As a member of the "Group of Seven", he traveled a lot in the open air and set as his goal the creation of the canadian national landscape. The group of Seven was the first Association of canadian artists who tried to develop a unified artistic style based on canadian national values.
