Walter Goodman was a painter, author and illustrator. He was the son of British portrait painter Julia Salaman (1812-1906) and Louis Goodman (1811-1876). He studied with J. M. Leigh and at the Royal Academy in London, where he was admitted as a student in 1851. His most famous work is The Printseller's Window, in the collection of The Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester, New York. Recent research has unearthed almost one hundred of Goodman's other works but the present whereabouts of most of these are as yet unknown. Notable exceptions are two portraits in The Garrick Club, London, and a handful of paintings in private collections in New York, London, and Stockholm, Sweden. Goodman contributed to many magazines of the Victorian age and wrote two books, "The Pearl of The Antilles, or An Artist in Cuba" - an account of his 5 year stay in that country, and "The Keeleys on Stage and At Home" - an account of the life of the Victorian actress Mary Anne Keeley.
