Edwin Earp is believed to be the eldest son of Henry Earp senior, head of a large family of artists. He was perhaps the most prolific of the family and painted across the British Isles and in Europe, with paintings in Scandinavia and Germany just 2 of the areas recorded. He favoured landscapes and especially mountainous scenes in Scotland, Wales and the Lake District. His paintings would have found a ready market and are equally popular today. He is also believed to have painted under the pseudonym L Lewis, probably as a result of being contracted to an art dealer or, more likely, a publishing house.
