MacDonald, along with Lawren Harris, was a strong force in the Group of Seven, leading them in their early battles against neglect and opposition. He was also a friend and mentor of Tom Thomson. In 1911 he had an exhibition of his oil sketches at the Arts and Letters Club in Toronto (of which he was a member), and received acclaim from his fellow artist members. Encouraged by this, he left his job as a commercial artist at Grip Limited to devote himself to his painting. In 1918 MacDonald went on the first boxcar trip to Algoma with Lawren Harris, Frank H. Johnston and Dr. MacCallum. Jackson stated that he always thought of Algoma as MacDonald’s country, due to his passion for this landscape. MacDonald painted primarily in Ontario - Georgian Bay, Lake Superior and Algonquin Park and the country around his home in Thornhill - but also in Quebec, the Maritimes and the Rockies. Paintings by MacDonald such as The Lonely North and The Solemn Land are icons of the Canadian landscape.
