Eyre Crowe (1824–1910) was an English painter, principally of historical art and genre scenes, but with an interest in social realism. He was born in London but grew up in France. He was the eldest son of the journalist Eyre Evans Crowe and brother of the journalist, diplomat and art historian Joseph Archer Crowe. He was a pupil of William Darley and later of Paul Delaroche in Paris. He traveled in the United States as amanuensis to Thackeray between 1852 and 1853. He published With Thackeray in America (1893) and Thackeray's Haunts and Homes (1897). He exhibited paintings at the Royal Academy in London between 1846 and 1908.
