As one of the country's leading and most respected landscape painters, Mervyn Goode's work should need little introduction. Born in 1948, he studied Landscape Architecture at The Gloucestershire College of Art, but bravely eschewed this career in 1970, at the age of 21, to pursue his true vocation as a painter.
Mervyn Goode's work has appeared in numerous One-man Exhibitions held in London and the provinces, a One-man Exhibition in the USA, as well as countless Mixed Exhibitions in Public and Private Galleries throughout the country.
“A traditional painter, with an appealing lyricism, Goode takes one on an extended nature walk through sheep-filled meadows, down by village ponds, up cart-tracks, into snowy valleys. He is able to create the meditative silence of a still winter’s day when ivy-covered Elm trees and country fields disappear into the thin haze of evening, comparable to a Wordsworth poem.”
