Goodall was 18 at the time.
Frederick Goodall was born in 1822 and garnered his first art commission at the tender age of sixteen when the famed, British engineer, Isambard Brunel, hired him to paint six watercolors of the ill-fated Rotherhithe Tunnel then under construction (the first tunnel in history to go under a navigable waterway). By the age of thirty, Goodall was an associate member of the Royal Academy, having exhibited their regularly since his teen years. Most of his work during this period consisted of portraits and genre scenes of British life (above). His work was good, if in no way outstanding, quite typical, except for his youth, of British painters of the mid-19th century.
