J.E.H. MacDonald’s 1901 ink and graphite drawing certainly shows a very different Bronte than that we know today. These weeks inside have given many of us a chance for contemplation, and while MacDonald’s sketch may appear simple in subject, it invites us to get lost in the delicate and detailed line work of a quiet farm scene where chickens stand amongst the grass and trees. MacDonald would later become a founding member of the Group of Seven, and this early example of his work offers viewers a tiny time capsule of Ontario’s past.
