An exhibition of watercolour paintings and sketches that illustrate the travels and influences of the landscape artist Albert Goodwin (1845 - 1932).
Goodwin was born in Maidstone in Kent. During his lifetime he painted scenes still recognisable today and which remain of historical interest. As a member of the Royal Watercolour Society, Goodwin exhibited extensively, showing nearly 800 works. He was championed by Ruskin and trained with the pre-Raphaelite brotherhood. This exhibition reflects the artistic influences of luminaries from Turner to Ford Madox Brown and will include Goodwin’s works featuring Salisbury from our own collection.
