Son of marine and historical painter Edward Moran, and nephew of artist Thomas Moran, Edward Percy Moran was born in Philadelphia in 1862. He studied with his father early in his career, but later studied with S.J. Ferris at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, as well as the Academie Julian in Paris, and the National Academy of Design, where he exhibited his work from 1881 to 1899.

Moran also exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1878, the Boston Art Club from 1881 to 1907, the American Art Association in New York City in 1888, for which he won a gold medal, and the Art Institute of Chicago from 1888 to 1918.

Percy Moran (he rarely used his first name) specialized in colonial and historical subjects, as well as genre and landscape painting. Many of his works were reproduced as photogravures, mezzotint, or colored etchings, published in various books and magazines.

E. Percy Moran died in East Hampton, Long Island in 1935
