Caricaturist and painter, also known as Quiz, born in London, Powys Evans was the brother of the artist Gwen Evans. He studied with Spencer Gore and Robert Bevan, the Camden Town Group: and also with Henry Tonks at the Slade School 1915-1917. After early painting of London scenes, he concentrated on caricature subjects, including five prime ministers and thirty judges. An enigmatic figure, Evans retired when still at the height of his powers to Dolgellau, Merioneth, where he lived as a semi-recluse.
