Judith Godwin


Judith Godwin was an American abstract painter, associated with the Abstract Expressionist movement. From 1950, when Judith Godwin first exhibited her work, and throughout her entire career, she held to her convictions, using a language of abstract form to respond with unbowed directness and passion to life and nature. Her aim was always to “emphasize what is important by painting the image of my feelings on canvas—to accept my feelings honestly, and not falsify.” Through her studies with Hans Hofmann, her long association with Martha Graham and Graham’s expressive dance movements, her participation in the early burgeoning of Abstract Expressionism, and her love for Zen Buddhism and gardening, Godwin forged a personal and unique career path.
