Ralph Strauss (September 5, 1882 – June 5, 1950) was an English writer, a Dickens scholar and literary critic as well as a novelist. Austin Osman Spare was an English artist and occultist who worked as both a draughtsman and a painter. Spare became popular among avant-garde homosexual circles in Edwardian London, with several known gay men becoming patrons of his work. Spare's major patron during this period was the wealthy property developer Pickford Waller, although other admirers included Desmond Coke, Ralph Strauss, Thomas Scott-Ellis, 8th Baron Howard de Walden and Charles Ricketts.
Born in Manchester, Strauss was educated at Harrow and Pembroke College, Cambridge.
