He was a follower of the classical movement and specialised in works with figures of maidens in landscapes containing flowers and plants. He was a member of the original committee of the Dudley Gallery, London contributing to the first exhibition in 1865. He continued to exhibit there until 1879, remaining on the committee until 1881. He also exhibited at the Society of British Artists and Arthur Tooth & Sons. In 1869, Coleman experimented in pottery decoration and was asked by Minton to produce figure designs for Minton's ceramic ware. In 1871, under his direction, Minton's Art Pottery Studio in Kensington Gore was established. He died on 22 March 1904 at St John’s Wood.
Examples of his work are held at the Blackpool Museum, Croydon Museum, Glasgow Museum, Victoria Art Gallery, Bath as well as a the V&A. This painting features a similar textile and charger to those in his popular Goldfish painting which appeared in the Pears Annual, Christmas 1883.
The painting is housed in a new English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
