Albert Goodwin RWS RWA (1845-1932)


Albert Frederick Goodwin, RWS RWA (1845-1932)

In synthesising the influences of J M W Turner and the Pre-Raphaelites, Albert Goodwin may be considered one of the most Ruskinian of Victorian landscape painters. Indeed, he was taken up by John Ruskin and, in 1872, given the opportunity to travel with him on an intensive tour of Italy and Switzerland. This set the pattern for many further and extensive travels. Like Ruskin, Goodwin responded to landscape with a religious fervour and understanding; but he interpreted it with greater eclecticism than did his mentor, even experimenting with the style of James McNeill Whistler, Ruskin’s adversary in the field of aesthetics.

Albert Goodwin was born in Boxley Road, Maidstone, Kent, on 17 January 1845, the son of the builder, Samuel Goodwin, and his wife, Rosetta. He was educated locally, in Bedford Place, at a school run by William Henry Wicksteed.
