J.E.H. MacDonald's "Evergreen" oil on panel limited edition recreation numbered of an edition of 460. This is a high quality texturized recreation, in a high quality frame which was custom designed, and has been professionally assembled. Original list price was $1,300 USD.

Born in New Elvet, England, J.E.H. MacDonald emigrated to Hamilton, Ontario in 1887. He studied at Hamilton Technical School and the Central Ontario School of Art, Toronto, under George Reid and William Cruikshank. He worked as a commercial artist for Grip Ltd. and went to England in 1903 to become a designer for Carlton Studios. In 1907, he returned to Toronto and exhibited the famed 'Tangled Garden' in 1916. He was a founding member of the Group of Seven in 1920. MacDonald joined the staff of the Ontario College of Art in 1921, becoming principal from 1929 to 1932. This work of art is an exclusive Master Editions lithograph, printed on neutral pH Phoenix Imperial fine art paper, employing the unique Phoenix Process. This process is a revolutionary method printing that is likely to transform the technique of art replication well into the 21st century. Through this process , every detail of brushwork and texture in the original oil can be duplicated, producing a genuinely recreated painting on a wood panel or canvas.

These recreations require as many as forty hand-mixed colours, which are laid down one at a time. This labour-intensive procedure is further enhanced through the use of special lightfast inks. Following the principle of applying light tonal values first, then gradually building up the darker tones, our craftsmen are able to capture, on a single-colour rotary press, the subtle chromatic nuances of the original, in much the same manner as did the artist himself.

Clearly, this is a time-consuming practice, which demands much of our artisans? skills. It is in fact, our hand-work of the very finest kind, which is dedicated to the preservation of the important icons of Canadian art, long treasured by the Canadian people.
