Lot Essay

Edward Goodwin is a shadowy figure, working in the tradition of Thomas Girtin long after that painter's death. He is represented by single works in the British Museum (a watercolour, Kew Palace, 1937) and the V&A (Bridge at Kippenross, near Dunblane). He lived at Manchester and Liverpool, and was among the founders of the Liverpool Academy in 1810. He also exhibited with the Old Water-Colour Society and the Royal Academy in London. In his view of the Severn estuary Goodwin treats his subject in a resolutely Girtin-like manner, even using laid paper, which gives the work the appearance of a watercolour executed significantly earlier than 1816.
