Frederick Goodall

97 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #1782
Orientalism   •   Frederick Goodall @ Wikipedia

Frederick Goodall was born in London as the son of a copper engraver. At the age of 16, his first watercolors were exhibited at the Royal Academy. He financed travel to Brittany and Ireland with prize money and the first sales. Here he began to specialize in romantic scenes of village life as in the representation of the "village post office". He soon became a member of the Royal Academy of Arts and earned recognition and a great fortune with his artistic work.

In 1858 he began a journey to Egypt, where he visited Cairo and the pyramids and lived in a Bedouin camp. He grew a beard and wore white robes and a red fez. He brought a herd of Egyptian goats and sheep back to England, where he kept them on his estate. The journey to Egypt represents a turning point in his career. In the following years, Goodall's paintings deal exclusively with Egypt and are based on the sketches he had made locally. The trips to Egypt also inspired him to create large-format pictures with biblical themes such as "Rebekka am Brunnen".

Goodall was fascinated by the crowds at the bazaar, the mosques, the carvings of the balconies, the sphinx resting in the moonlight, but above all the life of the Bedouins in the desert, which he described in his works Bedouin in the Desert and Evening Prayer in the Desert West ". At the time of his death, Frederick Goodalls was an impoverished man who had used up all his fortune. © Meisterdrucke
