Frederick William Elwell

England / 1870 - 1958 / wikipedia
Frederick William Elwell RA (29 June 1870 in Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire – 3 January 1958 in Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire); English painter in oils of portraits, interiors and figurative subjects. He exhibited at the Paris Salon and the Royal Academy, where he became a member in 1938, and painted a portrait of King George V in 1932.

....Much of his work, practised in a vigorous and realistic style, expressed his interest in recording Yorkshire life. The Times, in its review of the Royal Academy exhibition of 1936, favourably described his painting, The Lying-in-State, Westminster Hall (1936), as successfully conveying the emotions felt by those who had been present at the lying-in-state of the late King George V. Some 22 years later, the same newspaper described his work as 'persuasive' rather than 'arresting', and him as 'pre-eminently a painter of domesticity'.(
