Henry Goodwin was considered Sweden’s most important pictorial photographer from the first World War period through the 1920’s. Printed in a limited edition of 200, the 24 photogravure portraits in Konstnärsporträtt of famous artists were printed by J. B. Obernetter in Munich in a style very similar to Coburn’s. A contemporary of Alvin Langdon Coburn, Goodwin like Coburn learned the art of copper-plate gravure printing in his Stockholm studio and published several limited-edition volumes, this being his finest.
