Artist Biography

William Christian Symons (1845-1911)  entered the Lambeth School of Art at a young age and in 1866 attended the Royal Academy Schools. He began exhibiting his pictures in 1805 at the Society of British Artists (from which he resigned in 1888 with Whistler), the New Watercolour Society, the Grosvenor Gallery and the Royal Institute of Painters in Oil-colours as well as at the Royal Academy. He was extremely versatile in his range of subject matter: portraits, flowers, genre scenes, landscapes, still lifes and pictures on historical themes. He strove to maintain an individual style but was, perhaps, influenced by Sargent and by Brabazon’s rapid, colourful sketches. Although not a member of the Newlyn School of artists in Cornwall, he worked there for some time and an article he wrote about the colony was published in 1890. In later life he lived in Sussex. He was also a decorative designer of distinction: from 1870 he designed, stained glass for the firm of Lavers, Barraud and Westlake, and in 1899 he undertook extensive mosaic decorations in Westminster Cathedral.
