Afternoon Sunshine, Beauly by E Longstaffe

Postcard of a painting by E Longstaffe of Afternoon Sunshine, Beauly.

There appears to be some confusion when Edgar Longstaffe was born and when he died, dates vary by ten years though all appear to agree that he was born in Derbyshire, the son of a doctor, married, moved to Newport, Essex, where he died and was buried alongside his wife.

Longstaffe was a prolific painter, exhibiting at the Royal Academy, The Royal Hibernian Academy and elsewhere during the latter part of the 1800s. Though it is uncertain how many paintings Longstaffe produced, the estimated figure is in the hundreds in both watercolour and oils. You can still find Langstaffe's paintings at the Royal Academy; other works still appear at auction and achieve good prices.

His views, many of the Highlands of Scotland, remain popular and still in print.

Beauly is a town of the Scottish county of Highland, on the River Beauly, 10 miles west of Inverness by the Far North railway line. Its population was measured as 855 in 1901. The town is now within the Highland council area.
