Much of Frederick William Elwell’s 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.
