Albert Goodwin: Visionary Landscapes

Albert Goodwin: Visionary Landscapes Salisbury Cathedral by Albert Goodwin

Saturday, January 25, 2020 to Saturday, June 27, 2020


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.

We have created a virtual tour of the exhibition in four parts.
