Born in Kilkenny, Edward J. Brennan's father was a tailor and he was also brought up in that trade. He was for some time a cutter in a tailor’s shop in Dawson Street, Dublin, but having a talent for drawing he resolved to become a painter. He studied in Paris and on his return to Dublin began to exhibit at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1878. From that year until 1884 he was a regular exhibitor of landscapes. In 1884 he went to London, and then to the continent, where he died of intemperance.
