"Running Horses"



Here for your consideration is an oil and canvas painting done in the twilight of the career of American painter, Robert Goodnough. Signed lower right and dated 2006. Titled, signed and dated verso. Robert Arthur Goodnough was born on Oct. 23, 1917, in Cortland, N.Y., and grew up nearby in Moravia, in the Finger Lakes region. After earning a fine-arts degree from Syracuse University in 1940 he was drafted into the Army and served in the field artillery, painting portraits and murals at military installations. In 1946 he moved to Manhattan. He studied at the Ozenfant School of Fine Arts and attended Hans Hofmann’s celebrated summer school in Provincetown, Mass., where he met the artists Alfred Leslie and Larry Rivers and the critic Clement Greenberg. At meetings of the Club, a famous downtown discussion group made up mostly of abstract painters, he became friends with Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko.
