About Goode Art Gallery

The drawings and oils seen here were generated by my grandfather, Henry Goode (pronounced 'Goody'), who began painting boats sailing the blue Danube in Budapest at the age of 4-1/2. His art education continued on in Budapest, Paris and New York. Though he immigrated to the United States when but a teen and settled in New York, eventually he played cello in the New York Philharmonic orchestra with Victor Herbert; he also became prominent in the field of dress design.

It wasn't until he came to California in 1922 that landscape paintings and pen and inks of the classic silent screen and early stars of the 1930s and 1940s became his primary focus. He also worked for and was friends with Tom Mix and would play cello as the mood music for Mr. Mix' silent screen films.

Though Goode was known for his landscapes and drawings of the burgeoning stars of early years, he was also known for his portraits and sculptures. President FDR kept a small statuette on his desk created by Goode (soldiers with shovels) called 'Faith, Hope and Charity,' and sent an acknowledgement to my grandfather which read 'If they haven't got enough shovels, let them lean on each other.'

In the early 1940s in Los Angeles, the Second Baptist Church commissioned Goode to paint five religious murals. These murals are currently archived at the church and available for viewing weekly.

My grandfather also had a history of paintings that were simultaneously charged with a political and religious nature. This did cause him some issue when 35 of these paintings were slashed in 1941.

A website of some of his works can be viewed at www.henrygoodeartist.com.

I am thrilled to share these images and soon-to-be-seen photographs with you. Thank you for this opportunity to be part of your world and to share mine with you.
