Goff, Robert Charles

Robert Charles Goff (1837-1922) was an Irish printmaker and painter. He became a soldier at eighteen, but left the Coldstream Guards after he became a colonel in order to concentrate on his artwork. He learned the process of etching from a fellow officer and etched over 200 plates. He traveled to Britain, Italy, Egypt, and Japan in pursuit of new subject matter and often worked in watercolors. He eventually settled into a villa in Florence, Italy. Goff later died in La Tour-de-Peitz, Switzerland.
