William Stephen Coleman (1829-1904) was born in Horsham, Surrey. A doctor's son, he first began to study medicine, but his interest in natural history led him to painting and illustrating: between 1859 and 1869 he specialised in illustrating natural history books and also drew for ‘The lllustrated London News’ and other magazines. In the late 1860s he began to paint on porcelain, first for the Copeland factory, and from 1869 for Minton, where he pioneered a new style of pottery decoration, using brilliantly coloured enamel paints and a freedom of design inspired by Japanese art. In 1871 he was appointed Director of the Minton Art Pottery Studio in Kensington, but resigned in 1873 and returned to painting landscape and genre scenes in oil and watercolour.
