Articles on Albert Goodwin

ARC is pleased to announce several articles on Albert Goodwin, a leading Victorian landscape painter, and protégé of John Ruskin (as was JMW Turner).

"for pure aesthetic delight an untouched sketch of Albert Goodwin’s on the spot is better than any finished drawing."
–John Ruskin

'It is a great relief in an exhibition like this', wrote the art critic of The Spectator in his review of the RWS Winter Exhibition of 1881, 'which is mainly one of the disciplined skill exerted in somewhat commonplace directions, to turn to pictures like Mr. Goodwin’s, wherein the poetic feeling is so strong as to make us forget the technical skill which the artist possesses'.
