Religious Works – Signed & Unsigned

Religious Works – Signed & Unsigned

In a newspaper clipping with photo (perhaps The Daily News), a journalist quoted about the praying hands by writing “Goode has caught, critics say, some of the spirit of ‘Faith’ of these years of the depression.  They point out that the hands are neigther those of the ascetic nor the un-imaginative laborer, but of the man, willing to work, basing his faith upon the imagination of exprience.”  (Apparently, the praying hands were part of a Magyar Exhibit – lgh)

The Second Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California commissioned Goode to paint 5 murals early 1940s.  Currently the murals are archived at the church and can be viewed weekly (photo of mural is on page two).

After settling in Los Angeles from New York in 1922, Goode played the cello in the orchestra at 20th Century Fox, worked for and was friends with Tom Mix during the silent movie era, playing music for Mr. Mix’s silent films.  Goode sketched pen and inks of the burgeoning and well-known movie stars of the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940s; many of these sketches were displayed in local print media.
