Frederick Goodall
Birth: Mar. 22, 1822
City of London
Greater London, England
Death: Jul. 29, 1904
City of London
Greater London, England

Painter. Born in London, the second son of steel line engraver Edward Goodall. Two of his brothers, Edward Angelo and Walter, became well known watercolour artists, and a sister Eliza, exhibited at the Royal Academy under her married name of Wild. He received his education at the Wellington Road Academy. Frederick would spent his free time sketching at the zoo in Regent's Park. Frederick's first commission, for Isambard Brunel, was six watercolour paintings of the Rotherhithe Tunnel. Four of these were exhibited at the Royal Academy when Frederick was 16. His first oil won a Society of Arts silver medal. He exhibited work at the Royal Academy 27 times between 1838 and 1859. He was elected Associate of the Royal Academy in 1852. Frederick visited Egypt in 1858 and again in 1870, both times travelling and camping with Bedouin tribesmen. In order to provide authentic detail to his paintings, Frederick brought back sheep and goats from Egypt. The Eyptian theme was prominent in his work, with 170 paintings being exhibited at the Royal Academy over 46 years. In 1872, he married Alice Tarry; they had a large family, including Frederick Trevelyan Goodall and Howard Goodall. Frederick continued painting into the 20th century. One of his last works in 1901 titled "The Snake Charmer" was sent to Marlborough House for His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, to inspect. His work was displayed in many art galleries in addition to the Tate and the Victoria and Albert Museum. A number of the Egyptian oil sketches shown in the Academy Exhibition of 1869 along with other works were destroyed in the last war. He died at the age of 82. (bio by: Shock)
