Robert Gwelo Goodman was born in England in 1871 and came to South Africa as a teenager. His landscape painting won him early acceptance by the Royal Academy in London, where three of his works were exhibited in 1898. In 1900 he painted the battlefields of the Anglo-Boer war in South Africa, then returned to England, adopting the name Gwelo (the name of the Rhodesian town founded in 1895) as his second name, thereby labelling himself as a colonial artist. Travelling and painting in India and England, he returned to South Africa in 1911 and settled first in Johannesburg and after 1920, in Cape Town.
