Goodwin, Philip R.

After a period of study with Howard Pyle, Philip Goodwin made his career illustrating classic works like Theodore Roosevelt’s African Game Trails and Jack London’s Call of the Wild. Goodwin—a New York native—spent summers in the West, camping, hunting, fishing, and gathering material for his inimitable oils depicting the romance of sport. Along the way, he became close friends with Charles Russell and Carl Rungius. Goodwin’s images made their way into the American sporting unconscious through periodicals, advertising (especially for Remington Arms and Winchester) and calendars—the 20th century American artist’s bread and butter.
