Edgar Bundy ARA (1862 in Brighton – 1922 in London) was an English painter.

Bundy had no formal training but learned some of his craft at the studio of Alfred Stevens.[1] Bundy specialised in historical paintings in oil and watercolour, usually in a very detailed and narrative style, a genre which was very popular in the Edwardian time Bundy lived in. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1915 and at the Paris Salon in 1907. In the Tate Gallery is his Royal Academy painting of 1905 entitled The Morning of Sedgemoor depicting the Duke of Monmouth’s rebels resting in a barn before the battle.

Influences in Bundy’s work include Pre-Raphaelites such as John Millais, William Morris and the works of John Ruskin.

A fin de siecle British painter of great versatility, Edgar Bundy was in fact mostly self taught, although as a boy he spent a great deal of time in the studio of Alfred Stevens. A highly respected artist of his time, he exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1881and at the Paris Salon from 1907. 

Bundy painted mainly historical costume pieces, and his work is included in many important public and private collections. He painted The Landings of the Canadians in France 1915 for the Canadian War Memorial. 

His daughter Dorothy married the painter Richard Barrett Talbot Kelly in 1924.
