Goodall, Frederick

Frederick Goodall's first commission was six watercolor paintings of the Rotherhithe Tunnel and four of the paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy when Frederick was only 16 years old. His first oil painting The Corpse of a Miner won a Society of Arts silver medal. He then traveled to France, Belgium, and Ireland sketching and doing paintings that were widely accepted as The Soldier's Dream of Home and The Village Party. He was made an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1852 and eleven years later a full Academician. In 1860, he made a trip to Italy, where he enlarged the sphere of his ideas, producing true masterpieces such as The Dawn in the Desert and Mater Dolorosa.

Frederick Goodall visited Egypt in 1858 and again in 1870, both times traveling and camping with Bedouin tribesmen. To provide authentic detail for his oil paintings, Goodall even brought back sheep and goats from Egypt. The Egyptian theme was prominent in his work, he exhibited 170 paintings over 46 years at the Royal Academy.

He had a home built in Harrow Weald, where he would have elaborate parties and entertain royalty such as the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII.
