This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Artist, Walter Goodman, was born in London, England, (May 11, 1838), in 1857 he was accepted to the Royal Academy and also received instruction under J. M. Leigh. In 1864 he accompanied Senor Joaquin Cuadras, a Spanish artist, to the West Indies, living there for five years, most of the time in Cuba. While there he painted and wrote for the New York press. He also contributed to the local press, including a series of humorous sketches entitled "Un Viaje al Estranjero." He was arrested and imprisoned on suspicion of being connected with the Cuban revolution of 1869, and left the island.

After a year in the United States, he returned to England, where he devoted himself to portrait painting. Mr. Goodman has painted portraits of Sir Thomas and Lady Brassey, Wilkie Collins, the Duke of Edinburgh, and others. He also contributed to periodical literature both drawings and articles. A series of sketches of life in Cuba, first published in All the Year Round, have been since collected in book-form under the title of  The Pearl of the Antilles or an Artist in Cuba.

Five known works of his are in the following collections:
The Printseller. A trompe l'oeil In the collection of the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester in New York, New York
Mrs Keeley. A portrait in the collection of The Garrick Club in London, England.
Fanny Stirling. A portrait in the collection of the Garrick Club in London, England.
Kitchen Cabinet. A still life in a private collection in New York
Home Of The Bamboo. A Cuban scene in a private collection in London, England.
