Macdonald, Grant - 1909-1987
"Although largely unknown today, Canadian artist and illustrator Grant Macdonald shaped an international career during the mid-20th century as a theatre portraitist in New York, London, and later Stratford. The works exhibited here are selected from over five hundred housed at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, that form a vast panorama of theatrical greats who dominated the American, British and Canadian stages, from the 1930s to the 1960s. Born in Montreal in 1909 and raised in Galt, Ontario, Macdonald studied at the Ontario College of Art and the Art Students’ League, New York. By all accounts extremely personable, he quickly gravitated to the Broadway scene, befriending its actors and sketching portraits for newspapers, magazines, playbills and posters. A visit to England drew him into London’ theatre orbit, and over the next decade he alternated between both capitals, capturing their stage stars in many of their signature roles. His peripatetic life slowed after 1947 when he moved to Kingston to care for his father; the opening of the Stratford Shakespearean Festival in 1953 brought him new commissions during the next decade."

"McKim came to Los Angeles as a young boy and became a child actor, working with many of the top stars of the day. … After serving in the U.S. Army in World War II, McKim enrolled in Art Center College of Design. The day after he graduated, he was called back to the Army to serve in Korea, where he earned several medals and honors, including the Distinguished Service Cross and the Bronze Star. Upon returning to the States, he took acting roles as well as advanced art classes at the Chouinard Art Institute. … As one of a select group of Disney theme park cartographers, McKim's “fun maps” charted the layouts of Disneyland (several editions), the Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom, “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Tom Sawyer Island,” and Disneyland Paris. Following his retirement from Imagineering in 1987, McKim remained connected with WDI and Disney. In addition to appearances at Disney fan events and consulting work, his two sons both worked for Disney — Matt for Imagineering, and Brian for Feature Animation. He also continued to be active in the arts. His work can be found in the U.S. Air Force and L.A. County Sheriff Department Collections, as well as in private collections."
