[Whitby Abbey, North Yorkshire] '96
pencil and watercolour with scratching out, on artist's board
a view of Whitby Abbey from the east. There is an oil version of this in the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath dated 1910.
1845 - 1932.
Along with Alfred William Hunt, Goodwin was the most successful artist to follow Ruskin’s appeal to synthesise Turner’s atmospherics with Pre-Raphaelite precision.
