Autumn at Clovelly, 1929
Title: Autumn at Clovelly, 1929
Inevitably as Goodwin got older, he began to consider his own mortality. He didn’t wish to leave behind a large body of sketches and paintings as the artist Turner had done. He also felt that he should provide a legacy for his children, notably his daughters, who had looked after him.
He wrote in his diary in 1915: “I always have a sort of feeling that to leave behind (as Turner did) a whole lot of things which might be unintelligible or at least more so than they at present are, is not to do justice to Art, or yourself, or the public.”
