Lot 4173

German born, the Swedish photographer Henry B. Goodwin, originally studied Nordic languages and eventually moved to Uppsala, Sweden where he lectured at the university. He had already learned photography in the studio of Nicola Perscheid in Leipzig in 1903 and when his academic career did not really progress, he began concentrating more on photography. In 1913 he opened a studio in his apartment in Stockholm and had the first one-man show of camera art in Sweden in 1915. For fifteen years he dominated Swedish photography and achieved the same status that the popular painters of the time had. Both Perscheid and Alvin Langdon Coburn strongly influenced his work and he was one of the prominent pictorialists of the time. – Some surface rubbing, crease marks in upper portion and along left side, also with rubbing, otherwise a rich dark print in good condition.
