“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Walter Goodman was a British painter, illustrator and author.
The son of British portrait painter Julia Salaman and London linen draper, Louis Goodman , 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 around fifty works by Goodman. Unfortunately the present whereabouts of most these are unknown, notable exceptions being The Printseller , acquired by the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester in 1998, portraits of actresses Mary Anne Keeley and Fanny Stirling , both in the collection of London's Garrick Club, A Kitchen Cabinet, a trompe l'oeil painting in a private collection in New York, and a Cuban scene, Home of the Bamboo, in a private collection in London.
