William Powell was an English painter and illustrator born in London in 1878. Largely self-taught as an artist, he is best known for his rural landscape hunting and fishing scenes.

 

Having worked for the Worcester Royal Porcelain Co. as an illustrator, his style can be recognised on various jugs and urns.

 

Powell enlisted into the army following the outbreak of the First World War. Following the Mesopotamian campaign, he was badly injured returning with both legs having been amputated. Being awarded several citations for bravery during his time in the army, his injuries did not impede his artistic career, continuing to paint from his bed.
