Edgar Longstaffe (1852 December 7, 1933) was a well-known landscape painter of the Victorian era..Longstaffe was born near Derby in Derbyshire, England. The son of a doctor, he married and moved to Newport, Essex. During the 1880s he exhibited five times at the Royal Academy and at the Royal Hibernian Academy and at Birmingham. A prolific painter, many of his original works, most commonly signed with a monogram but sometimes initialled 'E.L.' or signed 'E Longstaffe', must be in existence today.

He was for some years on the staff of Messrs Raphael Tuck & Sons, being sent by them to all the principal beauty spots of the British Isles to obtain sketches for reproduction work in the earlier days of the art picture postcard.
