Edward Steel Harper was born in Handsworth, Birmingham, the son of the artist Edward Samuel Harper. He was educated at King Edward VI High School and Birmingham School of Art under E R Taylor. His landscapes in oil are painted in the ‘wet white’ technique, a method established by the Pre-Raphaelites, which gives the colours a luminous clarity. He was elected a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 1915. He taught art at Wolverhampton Grammar School, retiring in 1942. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Walker Art Gallery and in Birmingham. Works by him are in many public collections including those in Birmingham, Dudley and Leamington Spa.
