From the Toronto Public Library:
In looking at the illustrations and designs created by the Group of Seven, one exceptional artist moves to the fore: J.E.H. MacDonald, the poet, painter and designer whose work was influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement.
I like the poster. 

Kate Beaton posted a J.E.H. MacDonald thing. My life is complete.

Arthur Lismer painting I’m sitting under at the library. It doesn’t have a title or a date.

I like the originality of this. Also subtle placement means you won’t live to regret it. People who advertse partners end up after a separation in a mess. I have a hunch you will always like these men.
Thank you! jackpines has a tattoo of this too, so we kid that it’s the mark of the Group of Seven fandom. And no, I don’t imagine I’ll ever have relationship problems with Tom Thomson, or J.E.H. MacDonald. ♥

This tattoo was done this morning by Jason Matchim at Skin Illusions in Sudbury, ON. When Tom Thomson drowned in 1917 he left a large collection of his paintings and sketches in his studio. J.E.H. MacDonald acted as the trustee of the legacy of his co-worker, friend, and biggest artistic inspiration, sorting through Thomson’s paintings to determine which ones would be donated/purchased/gifted. He kept several for himself, and many were purchased by the National Art Gallery, the AGO, and private collectors.  Thomson hardly ever signed or dated his work, so to verify these paintings as authentic MacDonald designed a stamp that he pressed to the corner and/or backs of every one of Thomson’s paintings that he sorted. The stamp is in the shape of an artist’s palette, with Thomson’s initials and the year of his death in the middle. I decided to get this because it’s a perfect combination of Tom Thomson and J.E.H. MacDonald! Obviously I love them both and I couldn’t pick just one to represent, so this is a tribute to Thomson’s legacy, to MacDonald’s artwork and design skills, and his unwavering loyalty and admiration for his friend. As an extension of that, this tattoo represents my unwavering loyalty and admiration for both artists.

my 5 connections with the group of seven are:
1) a.j. casson taught an art & art appreciation class at my primary school bedford park. it was a small class. there weren’t many aspiring artists in grade 3 but i was one.
