THE ARTIST

Symons, Mark Lancelot

1886 – 1935

Painter who can be described both as a Symbolist with strong religious overtones and a Pre-Raphaelite follower.
Born in Hampstead, London he was raised in Sussex in a strictly orthodox Catholic family.
His family mixed in artistic circles with Whistler, John Singer Sargent and Hercules Brabazon being friends.
Symons studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, 1905-09 but after his art training he followed his real passion and joined a Carthusian order, painting infrequently. It was not until 1924 that he turned to painting full-time, exhibiting at the Royal Academy in 1927 and thereafter until his death.
He also exhibited at the Goupil Gallery, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, London Salon, New English Art Club, and many fine examples of his paintings can be seen at Bury Art Gallery, Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Newport Museum and Art Gallery, Reading Art Gallery and UCL Art Museum.
