Julia Goodman "née" Salaman (12 November, 1812 - 31 December, 1906) was a British portrait painter.

The daughter Simeon Kensington Salaman (b.1789) and Alice Cowan, she was one of twelve siblings and first studied painting under Robert Faulkner, himself a pupil of Sir Joshua Reynolds. In 1836 she married London linen draper, Louis Goodman (1811-1876).

Julia Goodman began her painting career by copying old masters and her works were much in demand. In 1838 she began exhibiting her original portraits at the Royal Academy [Jewish Chronicle January 4th 1907. Page 12] . One of her earliest original works was a portrait of Mr. Gilbert Abbott à Beckett. Other sitters included the Earl of Westmorland (who founded the Royal Academy of Music), Sir George A. MacFarren, Sir John Erichsen, Lady Martins, the Hon. Mrs. Le Poer Tench, Countess Waldegrave, General Sir Henry Taylor, Joaquin Cuadras (shown at the Exhibition of the Society of Female Artists in London in 1864) [Jewish Chronicle March 18th 1864. Page 3] , Colonel Thorpe of Guernsey, Colonel Thurburn, Charles Bertram, Miss Fanny Corbaux, Miss Kate Rorke, Dr. Van Oven, Dr. Francis Goldsmid, Henry Lemon, Rev. Dr. Lowy, Rev. Professor Marks, various members of the Mocatta family, Sir John Simon, and Charles Kensington Salaman. She is also known to have painted many other portraits of her family. Her final portrait was that of the Rev. Isidore Harris, which she painted at the age of 90. Julia Goodman herself estimated that she had painted more than one thousand portraits [Jewish Chronicle November 7th 1902. Page 13] .

Julia Goodman had seven children Edward(1836), Walter(1838), Constance(1841), Arthur(1842), Robert(1845), Alice(1848), and Miriam(1850). Miriam was a well-known pianist of her day and graduated from the Royal Academy of Music. Edward, author of many novels and travel books, was on the editorial staff of The Daily Telegraph for almost forty years and was the chairman of the Savage Club committee.
