Edward Angelo Goodall RWS (1819-1908)

Edward Angelo Goodall, RWS (1819-1908)

A member of a well-known family of artists, Edward Angelo Goodall established his individuality by recording the places and people that he encountered on wide-ranging travels. These included an early expedition to British Guiana (1841-44) and a commission from The Illustrated London News to cover the Crimean War (1854-55). Increasingly, he became associated with scenes of the Mediterranean, from Gibraltar to Constantinople, and especially Venice, which he visited on 15 occasions. His work is restrained, meticulous yet often luminous.

Edward Angelo Goodall was born in London on 8 June 1819, the eldest of the ten children of the Yorkshire-born engraver and painter, Edward Goodall, and his wife, Eliza (née Le Petit). Four of his siblings also became artists: Alfred, Eliza, Walter and, most famously, Frederick.
