  • 1901-1989

"Thoreau MacDonald, illustrator, designer, painter (born at Toronto, 21 April 1901; died at Toronto 30 May 1989) was self-taught but worked with his father, J.E. H. MacDonald (1873-1932). Colour blindness forced him to work mainly in black and white. His illustrations, particularly for the Ryerson Press and magazine Canadian Forum, typified a whole period of Canadian Illustration in the 1920s and 1930s. Certain technical mannerisms characterized his work; skies are a series of parallel horizontal lines; clouds are simplified ameboid shapes and trees look like skeletons of conch shells; and his animals recall the art of the ancient Near East, appearing full face or usually, in profile. In general, his subjects recalled his father’s but favoured Ontario farmland. He was one of the first artists in Canada to study factories and construction, but his work is most memorable for his delight in nature."

  • 20th cent.

Louise Jamet was a Montreal artist and Professor in the Fine Arts Department of Bishop's University in the late 20th century. She worked with sewing and embroidery, which, although using similar materials of thread and fabric, are different in purpose. The geometric patterns are inspired from folk art and kept as simple as possible so as not to draw the attention away for the process. Her work is a reflection on the original purpose and the process of sewing and embroidery.

  • 1882-1974

Born in 1882 in Montréal Quebec, A.Y. Jackson was a founding member of the Group of Seven and he was intrinsic to the development of the Canadian art aesthetic. Eventually working mainly in oil, he received his earliest artistic training in his hometown of Montréal when he went to work for lithography company at age of 12.
He began his formal studies in 1902, first working under William Brymner (1855-1925) at the Art Association of Montréal, and later at the Chicago Art Institute from 1905 to 1907. Immediately following his education in North America, Jackson traveled to Paris to study under Jean Paul Laurens (1838-1921) at the Académie Julian where he was heavily influenced by Impressionism. Subsequent to his studies, he traveled and painted England, France and Italy, and returned to Québec in 1914.
With their focus on capturing the Canadian landscape, the paintings that Jackson produced upon his return attracted the attention of fellow artist J.E. H. MacDonald (1873-1932) and Lawren Harris (1885-1970). They eventually convinced Jackson to move to Toronto, where he shared a studio with Tom Thomson (1877-1917) and become involved in all major group trips to Algonquin Park, Georgian Bay, Algoma and the North Shore.
Jackson exhibited with the Group of Seven throughout the 1920s. He also made regular sketching trips to Québec in the spring, travelled to regions such as the Canadian Artic in the summer and returned to the studio in Toronto to paint his canvases.
With a career that remained active into his eighties, Jackson exhibited with the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts from 1904- 1957 and with the Art Association of Montreal from 1903 to 1946. He died in Kleinberg, Ontario in 1974.
