Sebastian Evans (1830-1909)

Artist associated with 70 portraits
Evans was an author and artist who also worked as a barrister and journalist. In 1857, he became manager of the art department of the glassworks of Messrs Chance Bros. & Co. at Oldbury, near Birmingham. He held this post for ten years, and designed many windows for the company. In 1867, Evans joined the Birmingham Daily Gazette as editor, but left within three years to pursue a legal career. When the editor of the Daily Gazette died in 1886, Evans resumed the editorship. He pursued his artistic and poetic interests and exhibited pictures at the Royal Academy and elsewhere. He published several collections of poems, most notably Brother Fabian's Manuscript and other Poems (1865).
