Walter Goodman

Walter Goodman (11 May 1838 – 20 August 1912) was a British painter, illustrator and author.

The son of British portrait painter Julia Salaman (1812–1906) and London linen draper and town councillor, Louis Goodman (1811–1876), he studied with J. M. Leigh and at the Royal Academy in London, where he was admitted as a student in 1851. Recent research has unearthed details of nearly one hundred works by Goodman. Unfortunately the present whereabouts of most these are unknown, notable exceptions being The Printseller's Window (c.1882), acquired by the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester in 1998, portraits of actresses Mary Anne Keeley (also known as Mrs. Keeley At Fourscore) and Fanny Stirling (1885), both in the collection of London's Garrick Club, A Kitchen Cabinet (1882) in a private collection in USA, and a Cuban scene, Home of the Bamboo, in a private collection in Sweden. Several sketches, paintings and water colours, are still in the possession of Walter Goodman's descendants.

Famous quotes containing the word goodman:

    The important thing about travel in foreign lands is that it breaks the speech habits and makes you blab less, and breaks the habitual space-feeling because of different village plans and different landscapes. It is less important that there are different mores, for you counteract these with your own reaction- formations.
    —Paul Goodman (1911–1972)
