No. But it should say something important; that being young can be so fantastic, and such a disaster at the same time. And that you are not alone.

—  Bryan Elsley

The Faithful Guardian (1911). Arthur John Elsley (British, 1861-1952). Oil on canvas.

Elsley had perfected his canine portraiture by the time he entered the studio of Fred Morgan in 1889. Here he discovered the successful formula of combining pets with children. Elsley painted the animals in conjunction with Morgan who undertook the children until 1900 when Elsley started to execute works on a grander scale successfully by himself.
