Early Days:

   MacDonald-Wright was born in Charlottesville, Virginia and moved to Santa Monica, California at age ten. He soon moved to Paris to study at the Sorbonne, Academie Julian, École des Beaux-Arts and the Academie Colarossi. While there he and Morgan Russell developed synchronism, an art movement which aimed to create emotion with color. In 1915, during World War I, he left the Parisian art world for New York, and after for southern California, to which he brought the 'gospel' of modern art, and established the first exposition of modern art in Los Angeles.
