Born in Philadelphia, Edward Percy Moran studied with his father marine artist Edward Moran, then at the Pennsylvania Academy, the National Academy, and in London and Paris in the 1880's. He specialized in historical subjects and genre paintings, this being a charming example. Moran kept a studio in NYC and was one of the first artists to establish a studio on the eastern end of Long Island, in Greenport. He exhibited at the Paris Salon, the Brooklyn Art Academy, the Boston Art Club, the National Academy, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Pennsylvania Academy, winning many awards.
