In this beautiful painting, Albert Goodwin has captured the light of dawn as it rises above Lucerne. Goodwin has perfectly recreated this medieval city in Switzerland, the famous Kaperbrücke over the River Reuss evident in the centre of the work. Lake Lucerne and the snow-capped mountains Pilatus and Rigi which surround the city are visible in the distance. To this day the view has stayed relatively the same.

Biography

Albert Goodwin was a notable British landscape painter, who specialised in watercolours.  Born in Maidstone, Kent Albert was the son of a builder and one of nine children.  After leaving school he became an apprentice draper.  His exceptional ability was recognised at an early age and he went on to study with the Pre-Raphaelite artists Arthur Hughes and Ford Madox-Brown.

 

At the age of 15 Goodwin’s first painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy and he became an associate member of the Royal Watercolour Society (RWS) in 1876. He was championed by famed art critic John Ruskin who took him on a tour of Europe, where he made many sketches from nature which were later turned into watercolours. During his lifetime he traveled extensively throughout Britain and Europe, and visited many other countries.

 

Goodwin was a prolific artist, producing over 800 works and continuing to paint well into his eighties. His wide variety of landscape subjects reflected his love of travel and show the influence of Turner, with whom he felt a strong affinity. In later works he developed experimental techniques such as using ink over watercolour to achieve atmospheric lighting effects.
