Arthur Clifton Goodwin (1864 - 1929)

Arthur Clifton Goodwin was a highly-regarded American artist who came to his painting career late in life. He is most associated with the Boston art scene.

Goodwin had a career as a banker before he decided to become an artist. He made his decision at the relatively late age of thirty-nine years. He was a self-taught artist, having no apprenticeships or formal training to speak of when he started his career. His talent was soon apparent, however, and he busied himself capturing the scenery of Boston in pastels and in oil.

He had his first solo exhibition at the Boston Gallery in 1904. His art was subsequently exhibited at well-known museums and studios all over the Boston area. In 1920, he decided to relocate to New York.

He established a studio in Greenwich Village for two years and then one in Old Chatham. He painted both cityscapes and the Hudson River Valley. During this time, his paintings were displayed at institutions such as the National Academy of Design in addition to being commercially very popular.

In 1929, Arthur Clifton Goodwin was preparing to go to Paris to study Impressionism. He died the evening before leaving, tickets in his pocket and packed to go.
