(1881 - 1935)

Philip Goodwin was born in Norwich, Connecticut and was a precocious child, painting and drawing from a young age. At age 11, he sold his first illustrated story to Collier's. He studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, the Art Students League in New York City, the Drexel Institute in Philadelphia, as well as under famed illustrator Howard Pyle at the Howard Pyle School. At the age of 22, in 1903, Goodwin illustrated Jack London's Call of the Wild and later Theodore Roosevelt's African Game Trails as well as posters, calendars, and other advertisements. In 1904, he opened a studio in New York, where he created illustrations for Collier's Weekly, Everybody's Magazine, Outdoor Life, and McClure's Magazine, as well as covers for The Saturday Evening Post. He was an avid sportsman and outdoorsman and befriended Charles Russell, N.C. Wyeth, Carl Rungius, Theodore Roosevelt, Will Rogers, and Ernest Seton Thompson. Rungius taught Goodwin an appreciation for hunting in order to become closer to wildlife subjects. Traveling on many sketching expeditions together, Goodwin influenced Russell's painting techniques and use of color.

Books on Goodwin's life and art include Philip R. Goodwin - America's Sporting and Wildlife Artist.

Goodwin's work is recognized in many private collections and museums, including the American Museum of Natural History, the Brandywine River Museum, the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, the Charles M. Russell Museum, the Glenbow Museum, the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, the National Museum of Wildlife Art, and the Thomas Gilcrease Institute.
