Thoreau MacDonald, Available Artwork
(1901 - 1989)
Thoreau MacDonald, illustrator, designer and painter, was born in Toronto in 1901. A self taught painter, Thoreau worked alongside his father JEH Maconald. Colour blindness forced him to work mainly in black and white palettes. He illustrated for the Ryerson Press and the Canadian Forum magazine during the 1920’s and 30’s, a period when Canadian illustrated prints flourished. In general, his subject matter paralleled his father’s, though he tended to favour Ontario farmscapes.
