Edward Duncan was apprenticed to Robert Havell the engraver and learnt first to be an engraver. He set up his own business and worked mainly on sporting themes and coastal scenes. He is acknowledged to have very good drawing skills, perhaps as a result of this early discipline and indeed all his works show great attention to detail and accuracy. He later became an accomplished artist, chiefly in watercolours, and was a member of the Old Water Colour Society and the New Water Colour Society. He exhibited prolifically, at both Water Colour Societies and also at the British Institute, the Royal Academy, the Victoria and Albert Museum and other major provincial galleries. His coastal scenes, often depicting ship wrecks, are among his best and most important works.
