Goodall, Edward. (Brit.) (1795-1870.) As an artist he was entirely sell-taught. He began life as an engraver and landscape-painter, exhibiting several pictures in oil at the Royal Academy. Attracting the attention of Turner at an early age, he received a standing order from that artist to engrave his works as they were produced, and abandoned painting entirely. Among his plates alter Turner are, "Cologne" "Tivoli" "Caligula'a Bridge" "Old London Bridge" and many views of England, Wales, and the South. He engraved several of the works of Frederick Goodall, R. A., and the illustrations for Campbell's Poems, Rogers' "Italy," "Pleasures of Memory," and others.

"One of the most remarkable single studies brought home by Frederick Goodall is 'An Arab Improvisatore' [R. A., 1873], which is wonderfully complete, original, and life-like. The face, with its expression, engages us at once, and we cannot resist his importunity to move us to listen to his story."--- Art Journal, June, 1873.
