Edward Duncan Biography

(b England, 1803; d 1882) English Painter. Edward Duncan began his career as an engraver of shipping scenes and became known for his renderings of maritime subjects. He sketched on the coasts of England, Scotland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and particularly the Gower Peninsula in Wales.* Duncan met his wife, Bertha, through a fellow maritime painter, William Huggins (1820-1884), whose pictures Duncan had engraved.** Edward Duncan excelled in depicting rough, breezy seas in both watercolors and oils. He began to exhibit in 1830 and became a member of the New Society of Painters in Watercolors in 1834. In 1847 he resigned to become an Associate of the Society for Painters in Watercolors of which he became a full member in 1849.*** Duncan continued to compose maritime-based scenes until his death in 1882.
