Portrait of Fred Elwell in advanced years, wearing a suit and glasses, against a red background. Signed, 'with love Laura'. It is not known how Knight and Elwell met, but both were elected members of the Royal Academy in the 1930s, both studied painting in Belgium and they shared an interest in circuses. This is one of the few depictions of Elwell without his customary trilby hat. Glazed, plain wood.
