GOODMAN, Walter, artist, born in London, England, 11 May, 1838. He studied his profession under J. M. Leigh and at the Royal academy, where he was admitted a student in 1857. In 1860 he went to the Continent, where he remained three years. In 1864 he accompanied Senor Joaquin Cuadras, a Spanish artist, to the West Indies, where he resided for five years, most of the time in Cuba. He not only painted during his stay on that island, but wrote for the New York and local press. To the latter he contributed a series of humorous sketches entitled " Un Viaje al Estranjero." He was arrested and imprisoned in More Castle on suspicion of being connected with the Cuban revolution of 1869, and compelled to leave the island. After a year in the United States, he returned to England, where he devoted himself to portrait painting. He was the first European artist to obtain a commission from a native of China. Mr. Goodman has painted portraits of Sir Thomas and Lady Brassey, Wilkie Collins, the Duke of Edinburgh, and others. He also contributes to periodical literature both drawings and articles. A series of sketches of life in Cuba, first published in "All the Year Round," have been since collected in book-form under the title of "The Pearl of the Antilles ; or, an Artist in Cuba."
