George Turland Goosey (1877-1947) was a British artist. Trained as an architect, he made a name for himself initially in America where he designed some of the early skyscrapers and several Roman Catholic churches. Goosey was also an accomplished etcher. He then decided to try his hand at painting and developed an impressionistic style in oils which won him many admirers. In 1921, Goosey returned to England and settled in the art colony at St Ives, Cornwall. As the Second World War loomed, he returned to America, settling in Laguna Beach, California. Goosey visited Ceylon in 1935.
