Artist Biography

Best known for his depictions of Boston street scenes and the waterfront in both oil and pastel, Arthur C. Goodwin painted en plein air in a style that merged Impressionism with the aesthetics of New York’s Ashcan School. Despite being self-taught, he was a member of the Guild of Boston Artists as well as the Boston Society of Water Color Painters. While he lived the majority of his life in Boston, he settled in New York City for part of the 1920’s, during which time he captured the urban life of the area from a studio in Washington Square.
