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[1][2] 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.[4] 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.[23]

Born in Manchester, Strauss was educated at Harrow and Pembroke College, Cambridge.
