Goodwin, Albert

Albert Goodwin (Artist) was the son of a builder and one of 9 children. After leaving the school he became an apprentice draper. His exceptional artistic ability was recognized at an early age and he went on to study with the Pre-Raphaelite artists Arthur Hughes and Ford Madox Brown, the latter predicting that he would become "one of the greatest landscape painters of the age". Although trained by Pre-Raphaelites, his work has nothing to do with them, and everything to do with the Romantic work of J.M.W. Turner.

Albert Goodwin at the age of 15 exhibited his first painting at the Royal Academy. He became an associate member of the Royal Watercolor Society in 1876. He was encouraged and spoken highly of by the famed art critic John Ruskin, who took him on a voyage to Europe's art capitals and countrysides. Goodwin made many sketches from nature which were later turned into watercolor paintings. During his lifetime he traveled throughout Britain and again through Europe, and many other countries.

Albert Goodwin was a prolific artist, producing over 800 works and continuing to paint well into his eighties. His wide variety of landscape subjects reflected his love of travel and show the influence of J.M.W. Turner, with whom he felt a strong affinity. In later works, he created techniques such as using ink over watercolor to achieve atmospheric effects.
